"I'm Tiffany Cam. High your PG and E Bill could go up if a pair of rate increase proposals. From the utility are approved by state regulators PG filed the request yesterday with the California Public utilities commission. It cited several needs for the rate hike, including the need to boost its wildfire safety programs kick, you it easily pick off white has been following the story and she joins me now. And Lisa how much of a rate increase. Are we talking about here, and what would the money be used for so PG any in the filings to the California Public utilities commission said that the average electric user could see an increase of more than ten dollars a month in their bills for this. They're actually asking for several billion dollars and PG, and he said that about half of that would go toward their wildfire safety programs, and that would be for for instance, new utility poles. Covered power lines. They're saying they're going to add thirteen hundred weather stations, hundreds of new cameras and really do better at that tree clearing, and then an additional two hundred and four million dollars of that would just go for also regular gas and electric operations that they say that they need. All right. So that's a lot of money. Why are they asking for it? Now, I just want to make clear that this isn't something special that's happening because of the wildfires. This hearing actually happens every three years, and it's part of this kind of semi legal process that determines what you and I and any ratepayer in California actually pays for their electrical costs. And what happens is is the utility goes to the CPU see in kind of this legal setting, and they have their lawyers, and they're like, hey, we need this amount of money to do these things we need this much for polls. We need this much for a new safety operation center. And then other people are allowed to join in with their own lawyer, sometimes that might be a locality like San Bruno, for instance, or it also might be a group like turn. Who's been very active and utility regulation. And then there's also part of the CPU see that's there for rate payers for us. And they go in and they say, hey, you know, PG, maybe you don't need to be spending that much on this kind of thing. And it all goes before an administrative law judge. And then that judge helps everybody basically through this legal proceeding decide what our electric and gas rates should be that goes to the commission who votes on it. Right. And what would this money not go towards so there's a couple things PG wanted to make very clear that the money would not be spent on some of those are these lawsuits that are bubbling up from the deadly and devastating fires of last year and the campfire from this year. So what it won't go towards paying out some of those lawsuits that could and have an estimated to cost billions of dollars for the company. However, what some of it could go toward is increasing the utility is liability insurance. And that is because you know, pe- genius facing billions of dollars in these lawsuits. However, they're only insured for tens of millions of dollars. So there's a big gap right there that they're concerned about and this second rate increase proposal that's related to the decommissioning of the Diablo canyon nuclear power plant on the central coast. Right. Yes. So they also filed a second motion yesterday. And that is for one point six billion dollar. That rape payers pay out over a six-year period. And this isn't the first time that PG he has asked for that money. They ask the commission for money for that in two thousand fourteen and twenty seventeen and the commission actually denied it to them saying that there are other ways, and this has been a very contentious issue, and I'm expecting to see a lot of outcry at public hearings for it. All right. Thank you. Lisa. Thank you. That was Lisa pickoff white for more on.

The Trump administration's trying to fast track and environmental review of projects that deliver. Federally subsidized water to farmers out. West NPR's, Kirk siegler reports a new presidential. Memorandum is designed to loosen environmental restrictions in west coast states, Republicans going back to the George W Bush administration have tried to increase water deliveries to farmers and California's massive central valley project where water from snow fed reservoirs gets pumped south to arid farmland. But those deliveries are perennially cut back due to attempts to protect endangered fish and drought. The president's order would speed up a current review of this as well as two other projects in Oregon and Washington, if environmental restrictions are loosened there will likely be. Prolonged legal battle one of the biggest champions of this latest plan is deputy interior secretary. David Bernhardt used to lobby for the Fresno based Westlands water district one of the largest and most influential water agencies in the west Kirk siegler, NPR news. This is NPR firm cake news, I'm Tiffany Cam. High. President Trump wants to see more water go to central valley farmers so much. So that he signed a memorandum saying that yesterday science reporter Lauren summer is here to explain all of this to us and Lauren the federal government has put states in charge of their own water. Does this memo tried to chip away at those states rights, and if not what does it do? Yeah. I mean, the reality is California is in charge of most of the decisions around water within our state borders, and that's based on a lot that goes back more than a century. There is one area though. And this is where it's. Get particularly messy where the federal government controls things and that has to do with them endangered species protections for salmon and delta smelt these two fish that are kind of caught up in these California water wars. So the federal government is now rewriting those protections. The memorandum from Trump basically said to speed up that process, and if that actually weakens protections for these endangered species it sets up a really big fight potentially. And that's because the state has its own endangered species acts of estate will want to see tough protections for these species. Even if the federal government weakens them. So the president was surrounded by a lot of Republican congress members from the central valley when he signed this a few of them are in races. That are tighter than expected. Is it a coincidence that this is coming so close to the election? There's a lot of speculation that no it was not a coincidence. I mean, you have people like Representative Jeff Denham from turlock his race is a lot tighter than maybe he expected. And a lot of them. Got this great photo op with the president signing something and they can go back to their constituents. Mostly farmers saying look what we did for you. Even though really this.

To sell products produced under, these, conditions, in, California if, voters approve of proposition twelve Sacramento. Bee political reporter Brian, Anderson is following the story so first of all can? You explain what proposition twelve intends to do proposition twelve basically expands some living space for pigs. Calves and egg-laying, hens over the. Next several years so right now animals are confirmed Find in unspecified square, feet levels and this adds off of, proposition two back in two thousand. Eight and it more clearly defines specific dimensions in which animals will have to. Be confined going forward and there's a little bit of. A, grace period where some of it takes. Effect in twenty twenty but a lot of. The main portion of this proposition will go into effect starting. In twenty twenty two calling for egg-laying hens to have some cage free environments in the video that. Was released yesterday shows animal, abuse, in, Kentucky, so this, initiative has the potential they hit. Farms outside of California, yes so one key part of this proposition is that? It will apply to any company really selling products in California so other suppliers out of state. Places like Kentucky, will if voters Decide to support this measure in November It'll basically say that out of state companies will have. To adopt to California standards going forward so this could potentially have a. Huge, impact. On the US agriculture industry oh absolutely this. Is a potential for some sweeping change, if you ask the proponents of, it but on a more contextual note there is some some regulations already on the books, as. Of two thousand eight with proposition two. So this would really be expanding requirements it's not really going to be as new and there's already been a lot of progress over the last decade within California and across, the country where you see food companies having sort of a greater awareness of what their confinement practices are. And going towards a cage free trend so this seems to be building on the existing. Progress, that's happened over, the past decade proposition twelve's predecessor properties To was approved by voters by about sixty three percent in two thousand eight coming into the November elections does this new initiative look. To have the same amount of support according to internal pulling from the humane society it does. Appear to have that I haven't reported on internal polling that they have. As, you. Have to worry about the question wording and lots of different factors but according to, supporters they're seeing a similar level, of support compared to two thousand eight and are expecting this to pass by probably at, least.
