"It's morning edition on I'm Brian watt housing. And transportation governor Gavin Newsom says the two are linked in his budget plan that he released yesterday puts that link in writing K Q Idi politics, reporter guy marzorati joins us to discuss it. Hello guy. Hey, ryan. So what are the specifics of this plan? Will it starts with this big vision Newsom has to increase housing production. He wants to do it where housing is developed at the local level and so the tie between housing and transportation is that Newsome wants to specifically take away money. That's been your marked for transit for road maintenance away from cities that do not produce enough housing. Now, what we learn from these this plan that came out yesterday is that the actual target for win. This policy is gonna take effect is not actually going to be until twenty twenty three which would be a potential second term for governor new. So this is a big plan that he announced back in January when he unveiled his budget now. Now that the details have come out we see that it's really going to be a long term process part of that is getting cities money to plan for more housing. But then the actual stick of this carrot-and-stick approach is many years down the line when I hear money earmarked for transportation in road repair. I think of the gas tax. This was a big political effort for Democrats, a big political lifted Gotham the money, how are lawmakers reacting to this where you're absolutely right. This is money that's coming from the gas taxes big Bill passed in two thousand seventeen and then protected at the ballot in two thousand eighteen so you can imagine a lot of Democrats who fought for the gas tax money to go towards something. Like this road maintenance are not happy with this plan. So I talked to Senate transportation chair Jim bell Senator from San Jose about this. Here was his reaction taken away that particular pot of money is probably a very unwise thing to do in the sense that it would defer your road maintenance, and you just have to pay more later because. The roads are already in bad shape. So they'll just get worse. And also heard from the assembly transportation chair Jim Frazier who represents the delta area. He doesn't want. These kind of conditions placed on road maintenance funding and Republican leaders in the legislature also came out against the plan yesterday. So how do they want spur construction? If not this way, I would say a lot more of the carrot side. A lot more on the funding side, you know, Democrats have had proposals that they want to take a look at to get local governments more money to spur the development of housing. The big piece of that is redevelopment something that was eliminated years ago. That was a big source of money at the local level for housing new Psomas said in his first budget proposal. He's not going to bring that back. We'll see how that develops. If there's another way to get an ongoing funding source for local governments because all the things that are in this plan yesterday are just one time expenditure. So even though it is seven hundred and fifty million dollars. It's all one time money to cities to help them plan on an ongoing source that can be leveraged. That can bring in private development. So there's that on the carrot side. And I think, you know, many Democrats, frankly are open to more if there is a stick on the local level, it's probably around zoning and saying, hey, if you're not building enough housing, let's give the state government the power to come in and take over your zoning. Now that's being proposed on a smaller level. Why Scott Weiner, SP fifty looks at taking over zoning around transit. There's been you know, maybe some talk of of expanding as as a stick. But that approach may have more favor than getting into transportation funds. K Q E D politics, reporter guy marzorati. Thank you. Thank you, Brian now from transportation and housing, transportation and tech Germany and its automakers have long been famous for high quality engineering and manufacturing. But the future of both is all about software automation artificial intelligence, and so on you wanna be a player in that future. You're going to have people working here in the bay area.

"You leaders say they've created a work around to US sanctions that would allow businesses to trade with Iran. Jake sagana row has details from Paris since President Donald Trump withdrew the US from the twenty fifteen Iran nuclear accord, any company doing business in Iran has faced the threat of harsh sanctions, France, Germany, and the UK have launched what they're calling insects as a way to avoid the embargo. The corporate entity is registered to the French finance ministry, and is supposed to be a transaction point to treat humanitarian goods with Iran outside the scope of US sanctions, but experts say the risk of violating sanctions is still high.
