"Hannah Scott is going to tell us where we stand with ranked choice. Voting may be coming to a ballot near you. Also in this morning's commentary, How shall we take advantage of billionaire is, um First the pandemic. Pfizer is preparing to booster vaccine after a study showing that antibodies from the primary vaccine tend to fade after six months. Several government health agencies have said this is not needed. Dr. Fauci agrees that at this time we don't see the need for it. What the pharmaceutical company Pfizer did. They did their own study and said, You know, we think you're going to need a booster. So we're preparing to boost that's fine. We want companies. We won academic institutions and we want the government to continue to collect data. So it really is a question of a firm recommendation versus an opinion. So he's all for the research, but he is not recommending a booster yet. It is entirely conceivable, maybe likely that at some time we will need a boost. It may be differential e needed depending upon the age of individuals and their underlying conditions. Losses, says the main challenge now is just to get more people to trust the first shot. Never mind a booster, he told John Dickerson on Face the Nation that almost all the people dying of Covid now People who refused a vaccination. When you hear people at rallies talking, don't get vaccinated. Don't get vaccinated. John. It doesn't make any sense because we're talking about a public health issue that his life saving for you, your family as well as your community. He was referring to the CPAC meeting over the weekend where people cheered the idea of not getting vaccinated. CBS News Medical contributor Dr David Agus says the main threat now is the unrestrained spread of the delta variant. In Africa, which is simply helping it mutate faster. We're nowhere near where we need to be. I mean vaccine just starting to roll out out of our country and others, but they're not getting to arms quick enough, as we see with the Olympics in Japan. They have vaccines, but they certainly haven't vaccinated the majority of their country. And I'm worried about the rise of the delta variant in places like Africa, where we're seeing it pretty the growth pretty exponential there and so what we're going to see over the next few weeks really are significant outbreaks in many parts of the world, which can enable new variants so it is worrisome. But as we wait to see what happens in Africa, the rest of the world seems to be moving towards more normalcy. In fact, flying should be getting a little more comfortable in the coming months. Scott Kirby, CEO of United Airlines, says the mask mandates on planes could be ending. The current government order expires on September 13 and fingers crossed. My guess is it will expire on September 13th, but we'll wait until you for sure. 10 minutes past seven o'clock. The worsening covid outbreak is among the reasons of thousands of people took to the streets of Havana over the weekend. People across Cuba took part in some of the largest protests the island has seen in decades. They're also angry over recent food and medicine shortages reporting from Havana.

Legislation to strengthen subpoena power of OPA, OIG passes Seattle City Council

"And some teeth, car radios Hannah Scott says those of the goals of the new powers of the Seattle police is oversight agencies just approved by the City Council. Here's her report. Doubts were raised about the existing subpoena powers of the offices of Inspector general and police Accountability due to competing language in the city's 2017 Police Accountability Ordinance and the SPD contract that followed. Yesterday, the City Council laid out exactly what powers Oh, I G and opa have in misconduct investigations with final approval of a proposal that came from the Mayor and council public Safety chair, Lisa Horrible to this new legislation, ads sections to municipal code and codifies and affirms the city's stance that the Office of Police Accountability in the inspector general can seeks. Pena's of those Who may have witnessed or been involved in potential misconduct incidents. And not only does this give the police oversight branches expanded subpoena power to compel cops and other witnesses, including officers to testify and turn over evidence in misconduct investigations. New rules come with some more enforcement teeth. Legislation creates a process for the Opa and the OMG to directly issue the subpoena and enforce them by seeking a court order should the subject of the subpoena failed to comply. The new legislation specifically requires that individuals and third party record holders Served subpoena are provided a written notice of the right to due process. This specific protection was not codified previously, and this edition is intended to increase civilian participation in Opa investigations. And oh, I G audits and reviews Council president Lorena Gonzalez celebrating the vote. When we initially considered the Police Accountability Ordinance in 2000 and 17, we needed that there needed to be details that Would need to be sorted out in order to effectuate the intent behind the subpoena power. But I think that and I think that the details included in this legislation accomplished that original, intense and really do, um, Implement much of what needs to be implemented in order to add additional transparency and more teeth to to what we had envisioned in that in that part of the ordinance. Now this change is subject to bargaining with the police unions as they head into talks for their new contract. Mayor Durkin says passing this law gives the city better leverage on accountability measures during those upcoming contract talks, but it's hardly a given that the union is going to sign off. In an email after the vote, Seattle police killed President Mike Solan tells me spot in its members look forward to bargaining, any change and working conditions with the city.

"Can it be this one right here then? Okay. Oh, this one, says Hannah Scott ad libbed a Hannah Scott. Bring Hannah Scott in press button on right to introduce Hannah. Add Level it. Hannah in. How about Hannah Scott coming on the show? All right, well, sad day for those people that thought the 16 39 would be thrown out of court. It was a summary judgment, which basically means the The judge was eating a B L T sandwich dropped from tomato on the piece of paper. They don't need to do this and then kind of moved on. Is that what happened? Hannah? I mean, aside for the guilty A judge. Yeah. Time for the guilty. The federal judge Ronald Leighton. He basically upheld the provision of ice 16 39 that were part of this lawsuit. So didn't this didn't go after the entire T of 16 39. It just focused on two parts that was the raising of the age restriction to 21 to buy a semi automatic rifle and then also banning the sale of those rifles to out of state residents. The judge basically said, as faras the age limit that you know, he pointed to the federal law that requires you to be 21 to buy a handgun and also A variety of different state cases over the centuries. Basically, that have allowed states to make their own laws as faras Age restrictions. Go. So he said that you know, the Second Amendment really didn't apply there and on the Commerce Clause one which is thesent out of state. Hey also said that didn't apply because essentially, the law was not impacting the state economy one way or the other. So therefore it didn't matter. You know that The lines for gun responsibility and other gun safety advocates in the state came out and said, you know, celebrated this They were, they were thrilled. The state attorney general Ferguson also said this was great held all of my 16 39, he said, and that he will also born that sheriffs who have not been Enforcing. I 16 39, including Lauren called Who's Running for governor should he shouldn't have to give them. Another warning letter was, I think the way he put it and that they needed to now be upholding the law. The ERA, of course, blasted it for not protecting Second Amendment rights. Alan Gottlieb, with the Second Amendment Foundation, who was part of the lawsuit says they're not done with this fight. We definitely are planning on appealing. We knew this building was coming down. The judge telegraphed it. Well, we've got to make our oral arguments that you're against us. You find it appalling that he thinks 18 20 year olds do not have constitutional rights on we're definitely going to be appealing. He also took issue with comments that the judge had made it a previous court hearing about 18 to 20 year olds. I don't think the judge is overtly anti gun rights were stacked against us. I think he stacked against 18 20 year old Young Americans act appropriately and as a result could have their rights taken away from them, or do you get to exercise them? It was more an oral argument, he made a diatribe against young adults. It's just that brains aren't fully developed. We were pulled by that statement, and he thinks they've got a pretty good shot on appeal with their argument over that ban on out of state sales. This is the biggest part of the challenge the secondary part of the challenge we've made. Under interstate commerce because out of state people it effects you know, people coming in from Oregon to buy guns in Vancouver or from Idaho. Going into Spokane is an example that he felt it wasn't an impact interstate commerce at all, and Case law. I think it's really stacked against what the judge ruled, and I think we're going to win that appeal pretty easily. The ninth Circuit already has. I think the case for showing that Both sides pretty much expect that this will likely be something that goes to the state. I'm sorry to the U. S. Supreme Court. But there's some question about whether the Supreme Court would take the case would hear the case because This last session. They've decided against hearing many cases that had to do with with gun rights, so that would remain to be seen, depending on what happens with appeal. Okay, I've got a couple of questions. How President setting Is this ruling? Is this based on other states and other jurisdictions ruling the same way Or is this like the first time we've got somebody to come along and say, Hey, what applies to handguns can easily apply to rifles and what applies to interstate commerce when it doesn't affect the state economy. You know is invalid. And I'm not sure I do believe there have been other cases where the handgun argument has been ruled that way. I'm not sure about the Commerce Clause argument. I mean, I'm just wondering. I know if the Arras behind it, you know, you've got the full force of thie guns, gun rights. Ah, lobby working on this. I'm just wondering if they have do they lose suits in the past that the day they appeal in on wind successfully by appealing to the Supreme Court. I mean, I'm wondering if Alan Gottlieb is You know, too optimistic or if if that's really the way in general, the court's air scene can I just answer that for you? Alan Gottlieb, defender. Strong defender of the Second Amendment needs.

"As the Seattle City Council discussed his cuts and overall change in policing the future of the lead program could also be changing our radios. Hannah Scott reports. Law enforcement assisted diversion program or lead typically sees cops divert low level offenders to the programme for services rather than having them face charges or prosecution. But the pandemic and staffing issues have led the fewer referrals from police to lead cofounder Lisa Dugard says the City Council and police chief are asking for 1/3 option community referrals from any number of sources, including them. Fire Department prosecutors, community and business groups like the Downtown Seattle Association, the cops would also still be able to make referrals, not a divorce from that. Police is like an open marriage. Dugard says. They're not leading this conversation about re envisioning policing, but rather an existing resource that can be part of the solution.

"Just gotta have lady luck blowing your dice and for Hannah Scott this was the time how many question did you fire off Adam so too and I've learned this in recent days that if you want to get anything more than one in when they do call you save all at once there was another girl from somewhere on the east of the cascades she threw up three all and I think from Yakima yeah yeah I I heard July I didn't you don't bother to to follow up you just one after another like you like he's in a in a batting cage well because you are you are on this like video remote system right and they control your mute so they turned my Mike off when they want I don't control it myself so I got to get it in while the getting is good and I want to give up give props to the governor today they often they'll shut them down and they go for like an hour and they said last question and after the last question today he's like you know what I'm going to take a few more that's how I got it I was governor Cairo news all right Sir so the governors in the batting backs and you're you through how many item to do you start out with an easy one and then you follow up the hard won or how do you do it you know what I'm trying to recall which way I did it I think I said the first question was about testing I'm thank you guys for this I just now in the newscast that we don't have those supplies out though some of the vital some of that swabs and things that we need for testing and the fact that we don't have that testing and the really good clear picture of what's going on here there is a problem so I said Hey governor are you worried about that testing ability making it tough to have a full picture of what the virus is doing here yes look at every governor the United States wish they had a statistically significant you know double blind research about who has this disease on where they are today that would help guide our decision making about when to do these stay home orders and how long to embrace them it would be tremendous to have that kind of information it would also be helpful to find the people who are affected so that we can get them isolated and so we can choke off the disease that way so because we don't have that right that's do we still know where everybody is infected there's a lot that needs to happen and we need that testing for that so at this point it says that they did to help farmers has sixty five thousand people have been tested for the virus in Washington is this and they've been tested through a hospital tested through your primary physician how are they being tested it that's all kinds of different SO that's your you job testing that's going on some other private labs that are going on it is the state lab and then you know if you go to your primary doctor they don't really do the test at the doctor's office they send you to the state lab where they said this one to a U. job very like you do I was asking for doctors offices to send them for a long time so it's basically a variety of ways around the state okay all right next question for the governor so this entire press conference was about enforcement as you know of businesses and individuals who don't follow his order and I've been curious every once in a while the sun start to peek out so I.
