"The story from ABC's Frank Stoltze. The inspector general found what he called a sharp increase in the number of administrative investigations ended in January and February Forty-five compared with just ten in the last three months of last year. The report said in thirty one of those cases officials did not appear to have ended the investigations based on established policies. A number of the cases involved things like sleeping on the job tardiness or traffic collisions but some involved allegations that deputies mistreated jail inmates. The sheriff's department called the inspector general's report a superficial snapshot it said officials act when new information arises that mandate. It's a different course of action to be taken covering public safety. I'm Frank Stoltze. California's private utilities have been found at fault for some of the state's biggest wildfires in the last two years, and that leaves them to cover billions of dollars in damages today. Governor Gavin Newsom wildfire strikeforce issued a report on ways to keep big utilities from going bankrupt from fire losses. KPCC's shan. Mcnary has looked at that report. It calls for the burden of fire damage costs to be spread more broadly among stakeholders, so not just utility customers or their shareholders, but also insurance companies local governments this might mean. The creation of a catastrophic wildfire fund or a different standard for what fire damage costs might be passed onto these utility customers. The insurance companies like the idea of a state backed fund to help it damages whoever consumer advocates oppose letting a fund like that transfer costs from the utilities to rate payers..

"Land today's, announcement comes just three days before the right of way on the second of three pipelines, was due to expire another pipeline, had already gone off line in March the story from KPCC's Shan mcnary without a deal two of the three pipelines could've been shut off together. Those pipelines carry about one quarter of the gas supply coming, in the LA basin losing them what have increased the, potential for sudden power outages during these hot summer months LA's gas supplies already under pressure did other broken and shutdown pipelines. And a state ordered limit on. Gas withdrawals from the Puerta ranch storage, field after the two thousand fifteen blowout so Cal gas had begun negotiations more than two years ago but Offered far less than the tribe wanted the tribe. Countered by asking for. Three hundred seven, million dollars up, front or twenty five million dollars a year for, fifty years it's unclear. Where the two sides ended up those details are still. Being worked. Out whatever the new cost of the right of way it could be passed on rate ratepayers if the state public utilities commission approves covering infrastructure.

Holy Jim canyon earlier this month he was due. To be arraigned today in Santa Ana but kept interrupting. Baheren Orange County Superior Court Judge Kimberly manager stop the hearing and ordered a mental, exam for Clark's will get the report back on October tenth for now Clark is in, jail without bail the daily at, seven thirty at seven three welcome to the frame I'm Steven Cuevas sitting in today for John horn thanks for joining us Amazon has long been. A marketplace upset her shaking up the way we buy books, groceries Just about everything, short of real estate, and life, insurance customers. Experienced a bit. Of anxiety a couple years ago when Amazon's acquisition of whole foods was announced as spoofed on the Jimmy Kimmel. Show a couple years ago welcome to Amazon whole foods would you like, to try our pita chips. And HAMAs oh yes sure I would thank you. Very much did you. Like that just, the one time, or would you like to have it every other, month The people. Who bought that HAMAs also enjoyed ARTAS Yuki debt and our AAA batteries would you like to your Now Amazon is reportedly, in talks to buy the. Landmark theater chain which operates about two hundred and fifty movie screens across the. US but Amazon through its subsidiary Amazon studios is also of course already in the movie making and distribution business, so to. Find out, how such a deal may shake up, the movie theater biz we called Bloomberg, tech reporters Spencer Soper he says it may hinge. On scrapping a decades long law known as the paramount decree a rule that prohibits, studios from owning movie houses. There was concerned that movie production studios had too much control over what people. Saw which movies appeared in theaters some of it was also geographical, too much concentration of ownership in particular markets and so these rules were put in place to, help the market the more competitive and reduce the amount of control that movie production. Studios had over the movies people saw and the prices people pay to see them. So that those rules go Back seventy, years they are getting a fresh review, now so the rules could be done away with. Or modified what were some of the other factors that led to a review of, this paramount decree it's part. Of a sweeping review of antitrust decisions going back decades the factors are just. That they're so old that they're now getting a fresh look simply, the age of these agreements and also to market changes over the past seventy years it's it's, tough to say that people lack choice in what they want to watch right now Landmark typically showcases smaller foreign an indie films that might otherwise be pretty hard to find if a big content creator. Like Amazon wants to break into the brick and mortar theater, business why start with a chain like landmark. Well there's overlap in that philosophy so if you think about Amazon's origins as an online. Bookseller and then it's foray into electron-. Book market and it's dust-ups with publishers a big thing. That Amazon getting a book industry was take on traditional gatekeepers so like landmark giving a? Venue for indie films Amazon has been a place for independent authors. To get exposure to reach big audiences without having to go through the traditional book, publishers so there's some overlap between landmark wanting to expose the smaller lower budget films and. Amazon's approach on books but Amazon presumably would want this deal to happen so we could showcase Case its own content correct that could, be that would be a part of it but I? Don't think that it would be an. Exclusive thing Amazon generally wants to give customers choice that would certainly be a big. Piece of this Amazon spends billions of dollars a year, creating content it's trying, to find a better footing and get more traction you know get more people engaged with, its video content it's still kind of a distant second to net, flix in terms of streaming it's won? Some, critical acclaim but it hasn't. Had any big blockbuster hits but the bottom line is if, Amazon's opening it's not going to just cram, its own content down its. Customers throats it's going to be mindful of what it's supposed to want to. See what's the reaction been if any from the. National association of theatre owners which represents thirty three thousand movie screens across the US what's their reaction been to a possible deal like. This I haven't seen much reaction that regard sometimes there can, be when Amazon announces any kind of foray. Into a new business there can be an outsized reaction when they announced Their purchase of whole foods a. Lot of supermarket stocks went down that. Sort of thing but this has been a little. More muted fifty theaters you know so, it's a. Fairly small market and then it could actually be a good, thing to, have Amazon encouraging people to go to theaters. Because it's just been a difficult business with so many people getting big screens. In their homes and streaming, content on demand that movie theaters are still. Destructing to fill the seats well if Amazon, is successful in purchasing the landmark chain could such a deal open the. Door for establishing legacy studios like paramount to also get back into the. Movie theater owning business potentially and, like we said a lot of the rules that would have prevented them previously are are getting, a fresh review so I think that the outcome of? Those Justice Department's decisions around those decade. Old consent decrees would probably way way more than anything Amazon is doing and if. Such a deal went through how to prevent what Originally led to the paramount decree in the. First, place meaning you know the monopolization of the movie theater, business a lot of times. These antitrust rulings in particular with physical locations it won't even, be like a sweeping ban like for any trust regulators, to say. Like no this deal can't go through caveats on it so if one store chain is buying another store chain or one movie theater chain is buying another movie here chain and they're worried about concentration it'll usually be market by market and then they can still get the deal through by divesting themselves and then. There, has been a lot of chatter around any trust with Amazon just in, general but by and large with the exception of books they really don't have market concentration in any one, category. And it's hard to, say that anything you buy on Amazon that you can't buy it anywhere else generally everything that's. Available on Amazon you could find a place nearby or another place online to. Buy the same exact thing so you can trust argument the way chance. Now it's a difficult argument to make about Amazon Spencer.
