"KTAR news on ninety two three FM. Get some perspective. Bruce, Saint James and Pamela Hughes got a bit of a log jam down at the Zona legislature. And we're trying to understand a little bit more about it. Because in the middle of it is more than one Bill that would help survivors of childhood sexual abuse. And we wanted to know who would be opposed to helping survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Twenty s right now on the KTAR news maker line is state Senator Paul Boyer. Thank you for joining us this morning. Absolutely. Thanks for having me quickly. Can you tell us these two bills that have been in the Senate that would help survivors of sexual abuse, get Justice? So the one that I'm focused on currently after concession with leadership in the Senate is seven years post. Disclosure what that means is seven years from when the victim should have known or reasonably known that they were harmed and they disclose it. That's when the clock starts ticking. As far as their stature limitations as opposed to that that two years we have right now from the age of majority. So meaning a current victim has only until the age of twenty to come forward. So you have said the you're not going to vote on the state budget until survivors are able to to file a suit for criminal or excuse me, civil court. Why would you hold up the state budget for this? I think this is that important. I mean think about the heinous nature of these crimes and these are heinous so heinous that I can't even I don't want to describe to you what state statute define sexual assault has especially as it applies to child. And so I just I can't think of anything more important than protecting children. And if we can't do that, then we should all. Hangar. Heddon? Shame in resign. We're talking to state Senator Paul Boyer. And by the way, I agree with everything you just said, so why is this not moving forward VIN who is opposed to expanding the the time if you will that victims of sexual abuse can come forward, and what is your motivation? Well, I I don't like to ascribe motives to anybody. But I will tell you that. I haven't been able to get a friendly audience with leadership in the Senate, including the Senate Judiciary chairman, Eddie Farnsworth. Okay. And as we understand it. He is the logjam in all of this. And that as the committee chairman, he can basically kill a bills like this. Do you think that again, we're talking state Senator Paul Boyer? Do you think your threat or you're, and I don't mean that bad way, your your principle stand in? And I know you have other senators willing to join you not moving forward on a budget until you deal with this will this break that logjam. I sure hope so and for the first. I'm I'm hopeful. At least that we could get something on this. Because I do think that once people start to realize how bad Arizona's lives currently, and we'll just what I'm simply proposing the members of public. I mean, I talk to people all the time. I get emails phone calls. And and they they asked the same exact question, you're asking why isn't this movie in? Yeah. I don't get. Why leadership doesn't get that show? How bad are the current laws? You said when people find out how bad they currently are. I mean, I is it just the eighteen to twenty that we're focusing on. Yes. So the law so bad that we don't even actually have a separate statute for child victims of sexual assault. This falls under the personal injury statute. So what that means practically is the guy that slips on a banana peel and the child who's been raped falls under the same statute. Meaning they have two years from eighteenth birthday to file a civil lawsuit against their perpetrator. As you've been working on this Bill. Have you had constituents of you had people come up and talk to you about the value in the need for this change in our state. Yes, I just got up the phone with with somebody. And mean, I've received numerous emails from people who are survivors that that are wholeheartedly with us. We're talking right now to Aaron a state Senator Paul Boyer who is behind Senate Bill twelve fifty five that would give a sexual abuse survivor seven years after discovery to file suit. I'm looking at a new times article right now, and in it, it says that Republican Maricopa County attorney Bill Montgomery his weight in in his against these measures as well is that what you're hearing to. Well, he did reach out to me about there is another proposal that he had put forward why not just make seven years from the age of. Jordy in other words, you can file age of twenty five. But here's why couldn't support that. Because all of the data suggests that victims don't come forward on average until the age of forty eight. Wow. We know this is again, I know you don't want to ascribe motive to people. I get it. But there appears to be possibly religious angle to this in other states that change their laws it opened up religious institutions to a lot of people coming for adults coming forward saying this happened to me when I when I was there is that part of the opposition to this. It could be but I'd like to stress I just met bridie feral. She was a United States working on becoming a gymnast. She has the national speed records and speed skating, and she was sexually assaulted when she was fifteen years old. And so in other words, this transcript, this, this versus churches. USA gymnastics. I mean, there's there's anywhere where kids congregate that perpetrators go. We know that keep us posted on the movement of this is important bills. And I think that these are the things that need to be more informed on. So we appreciate you joining us, and we're gonna continue to talk about this. That was worth having.

"Two five fifty. We're going to give you a pop quiz two seven seven KTAR. So a big question that's been around for quite a while is well, we'll we'll the entire state of our Arizona. You know, have a ban on texting and driving. And there was a more of a push this year because there was a police officer who was killed by a guy who was screwing around on his cell phone officer Clayton Townsend. So he was distracted by texting swerved over two lanes and killed them. Yeah. Struck and killed a police officer doing his job. But wasn't the guy who killed him wasn't involved in anything that the police officer was doing? So is there a texting and driving ban because the legislature was you know, trying to vote today. And you know, it's funny. Because when I when I came in today, there's Lloyd banks and he's watching it as it happened. Okay. And I'm like man, that's boring. You know what? I mean, you you get the legislatures. They get like five minutes to hear themselves talk hate people who want to just hear themselves talk. Oh, I mean, they're annoying to rob people. And yeah. Never stop just keep talking and talking right? Oh, yeah. I I deal with that on a daily basis. Yeah. So I feel Lloyd's pain. I I do I understand. So. It looks like two bills are going to go to the governor's desk. Okay. So why to Bill all right? Why not just a texting and driving ban? What do I have to have all the answers one zero? I could answer them if you want, but you keep interrupting why don't we go through the two bills. Boy. Okay. Here's the first Bill. It's the Campbell Bill. Okay. The guy down there and say, no L Cam. He's at a press kit. It doesn't make it was co sponsored by David stringer was not wise get outta here. It was co sponsored by. NFL file. Yeah. That's worse. Okay. So here's the first Bill the Campbell Bill. How he Fisher from capitol news service. Thank you very much. Here's what he told us his in the Campbell Bill. It says that if you in fact are holding the by your texting whether you're talking on it, you can be stopped doesn't have to see that you'll swerving or anything else. Simply the act of texting holding in your hand is enough to conclude that you're breaking the law to primary offense, right? Okay. And that's important. So police officer sees you, and you have a cell phone in your hand, or you you're talking on the phone and you've got the cell phone to your ear or the police officers. Sees you touching the phone. You're going to get pulled over just for doing that primary with your cell not going to get beaten. You'll be no cell phone with because wouldn't be a will be forced to put your cell phone in your trunk until you get home. So so that's what it is. You can't touch your cell phone, right? And if you do in a police officer sees it, they're pulling you over and they're going to give you a ticket. We don't need that. We don't need. We don't. Asas the sound of the Popo. You sound like you're at a club. Now, that's different. That's. Oh. I'm glad we got that out. Yeah. So all right. So that's one Bill. Why do we need to what's the other Bill? Why am I gonna work on the show? Why don't you do something? Okay. So here's the Messner Bill JD, MS NAR, remember yelled at Mike year ago. Did we not about this about this? Oh, we told them that pervert, what does this shoot shoot? It was going to screw them in what happened well shooter screwed himself over and kick them out. Right. But I told him as a day before shooters resignation resignation. He's going to screw with you. You've got to get rid of them. Here's what MS nerds Bill said. It's a distracted driving Bill. Other Bill could pass is what they call the distracted driving Bill the one you were talking about JD. It says that you can be pulled over if you're doing anything that has nothing to do with driving. If you're texting if you're trying to put sauce on your burrito reaching back to smack the kids in the back seat. Okay. But also says that they can only stop you. If it affects you. You're driving. In other words, simply the fact you're eating a burrito to factor. Talking on a cell phone is not ground suppose. Someone over you actually have to show that you present some sort of immediate hazard or that. You're not control the vehicle. All right. That's detracted dry Bill. And I and I like that because I've always said for years if you're going to have a distracted driving Bill. Okay. But then include everything included all we are distracted. When we're eating a hamburger or maybe even a conversation. If it affects your driving, you need to be held accountable. I liked that they pass that when two we'll see if Doug Ducey. Actually signs both bills. But for most from what everybody tells us, it's probably a done deal, and they also cover their their their rear ends to the texting and driving is specific distracted driving is more of an umbrella policy. I wasn't a fan of the draconian texting and driving that the, you know, the I can't remember her name McGee. I think Brophy McCabe Brophy McGee had out. I like the fact that Meszaros stood up and other people agreed with them. Okay. If we're going to do this. Let's do everything. So if you are, you know, what was the what was what did you see on the on the road one day when you eating what? I saw trash can on the road. Is that what you're talking about? Now, I saw golf clubs on the road. No. What are you talking about somebody eating a bowl of pasta on the row? Wasn't it? They were eating you know, like in the morning they were commuting and eating a bowl of spaghetti. I've never seen that. Okay. Well, anyway, that's distracting. No, I've seen it. Okay. That's distracting if that causes you to we've you should be pulled over eating pasta. Yeah. It was phenomenal driving with his feet fed tastic. Yeah. Tell me that wasn't you. Tell me that was not a use store. Three. But eating pasta and meatballs for breakfast. Get sick. I got full. Well, okay. But it wasn't you. That was eating the pasta. No oka. No. It was not. So so here's here's all you need to know. All this stuff goes into effect in twenty twenty one. I mean why? That's the party. They'll get but I gotta tell you a day at the Zona legislature. Where I will actually give them some credit is today. They got stuff done. They got something that was important on. It's not going to solve the problem of Texan in driving completely. But but this is this is probably about the best work that they can do. Coming up next carried that whole thing. I mean, it's just tired heavy lifting will tell you you want. Why don't we open up the phones for pop quiz? We'll give you a pop quiz on the.

Hello right now in Huntington beach, northbound four zero five at beach boulevard, we have a stalled vehicle blocking the left lane. It's already pretty tough driving. That's not helping at all also in downtown LA westbound ten at Hoover and earlier. Car-crash moved out of lanes, your stop and go from Alameda street and earn. Holly keeps us updated. Six thirty five right now NPR news. This is all things considered Ari. Shapiro chang. The Senate finance committee has been digging into the high costs of prescription drugs in the committee's third hearing on the topic tomorrow senators will cross examine executives from companies known as pharmacy benefit managers. Some of them are familiar CBS care, Mark, for example, and Express Scripts. These are companies that manage the prescription drug insurance plans for most insurance companies and employers and some senators and many others say pharmacy benefit managers. Carry a lot of blame for high drug prices NPR's Alison kodjak joins us now. Hey, Alison, high also. So what are the senators on the finance committee hoping to learn tomorrow? Well, there are a couple of big things. The first is they wanna show how secretive this system is this pharmacy benefit manager system. And how that secrecy can breed trouble. So the way the. System. Works is drug companies what they called this list price for their medication really high. Then they negotiate price breaks with this with the PB M's, and they control the drug benefit for millions of millions of customers. So those discounts come in the form of secret rebates that drug companies pay back after the fact the whole system is fried in secrecy and that breeds mistrust. So I talked with Senator Chuck Grassley today. He's the Republican chairman of the committee, and he called the PBS a secret organization. Let's hear what else to say. When you have a list price up here. And I'm raising my hand, and then you have rebates in between. And then you have a price down here for the consumer. How come we don't have everybody pay that that prices down here? What do you expect the pharmacy benefit managers these PBS? What do you say to defend themselves? Well, they've been defending themselves a lot recently. So I'm expecting me here the similar thing, which is in the end they actually reduce overall drug spending because they can control what drugs are millions of customers by and so they can demand. These discounts a lot of economists and analysts I talked to say there's no question they've reduced spending mostly by directing consumers to generic drugs, which are far cheaper than brand name drugs. But in areas where there are no generics. The benefits less clear, they say they save loads of money off those list prices, but many experts, including the secretary of health and human services argue the rebate system drives that initial list price artificially, high the say that's the pharmaceutical manufacturers because they're the ones setting that price. We'll are they correct about that well to some extent. Yes. Drug companies choose their initial price, and they raise those lists prices every year even on drugs that are the same. They say they have to do this. So they can offer PBS better rebates. So there's this big blame game going on. And Senator Grassley even noted it when I talked with him, the pharmaceutical companies pointed their finger at the PB M'S, the PB M's point their finger at the pharmaceuticals, and then both of those are pointing their fingers at the health insurance companies. So Senator Grassley is really frustrated here he actually sort of threatened that he would call another hearing bringing all three groups together because he wants to get them all at the same table and figure out what's going on. So what happens next at this point? I mean, do you expect anything to actually change? Well, there's a lot of action out there on drug prices. And particularly in this rebate issue. There's legislation in the house and the Senate both Democrats and Republicans Senator Grassley says he's going to craft a Bill, but even more immediately. The Trump administration has proposed making these after the fact rebates illegal. They would. Require PM's instead to negotiate for discounts up front, which being customers would pay the lower price. Even if they haven't met a deductible, but those discounts at no longer be confidential. All right. That's NPR's. Alison kodjak. Thanks. Thanks. Elsa turnout was way up in the two thousand eighteen midterms. And in the southwest that translated into gains for Democrats now. Republicans in south western states are pushing bills that changed the rules around voting. Critics say these changes are designed to reduce turnout in future elections from Phoenix cage as es Brett Jaspers reports on how it's playing out in Arizona. Republicans had full control of Arizona's politics until last fall. Then after democratic turnout surged they lost four out of nine statewide races, including a US Senate seat. Now. Republicans in the legislature are proposing new voting rules that could make it more complicated to cast a ballot one change would remove some people from the permanent early voting list. It's says permanent early voting lists. I don't know why everyone being the operative word which is early. That's the Bill sponsor Republican state. Senator Michele Eugene t Rita people on the permanent early voting list. Get ballots mailed to them so that they can mail them back or drop them off on election day. You Rita wants counties to purge people from that list, if they don't vote using an early ballot in two consecutive election cycles, we wanna make sure that the lists are up to date. That's just good practice. That makes sense. On frankly, any kind of database that you have that you really communicating with those who want to be communicated with and are using the service is a service. It's a convenience local election officials say they already have ways to maintain clean voting rolls. The secretary of state's office estimates two hundred thousand voters currently on the permanent early voting list. Didn't vote in both twenty sixteen and twenty eighteen but the office also says the bill's language is unclear making it hard to estimate the impact democratic Representative FINA Solomon calls it voter suppression to purge the permanent early voting lists known as pebble or people. There is a creek debates around whether or not in his pebble or people. But I find it fitting that if this Bill passes the list will no longer be permanence. And so one might call it evil. Republicans dispute this is an attempt to make voting more difficult. The Bill doesn't remove people from the registration rolls. Just the mailing list for early ballots. Some local officials say it will create more confusion. Republican lawmakers have proposed other bills this legislative session that have drawn criticism from voting rights groups, including one that bands paying workers for each voter registration for them. They turn in are seeing both the good and bad side of the fall out of the twenty eighteen election. Danielle Lang is an attorney with the campaign legal center, which works with voting rights groups across the country, including in Arizona. She says lawmakers often reexamined voting laws after an election. For example. There's a push from Iowa's Republican governor to make it easier for convicted felons to. Restore their right to vote after release that effort is BI partisan. Unlike Arizona's Bill, which has advanced along party lines all Americans care about election integrity, and yet these issues get framed in very unhelpful partisan ways, Republicans control the Zona legislature, the Bill to purge the permanent early voting list still has to pass the full house GOP governor Doug ducey's office says it doesn't comment on pending legislation for NPR news.

"zona legislature" Discussed on 90.3 KAZU

"This is all things considered. I'm Ari Shapiro Chang. The Senate finance committee has been digging into the high costs of prescription drugs in the committee's third hearing on the topic tomorrow senators will cross examine executives from companies known as pharmacy benefit managers. Some of them are familiar CBS care, Mark, for example, and Express Scripts. These are companies that manage the prescription drug insurance plans for most insurance companies and employers and some senators and many others say pharmacy benefit managers. Carry a lot of blame for high drug prices NPR's Alison kodjak joins us now. Hey, Alison, high also. So what are the senators on the finance committee hoping to learn tomorrow? Well, there are couple of big things. The first is they wanna show how secretive this system is this pharmacy benefit managers system. And how that secrecy can breed trouble. So the way the system works is drug company said what they called this list price for. Their medication really high. Then they negotiate price breaks this with the PB and they control the drug benefit for millions of millions of customers. So those discounts come in the form of secret rebates that drug companies pay back after the fact the whole system is fried in secrecy in that breeds mistrust. So I talked with Senator Chuck Grassley today. He's the Republican chairman of the committee, and he called the PB a secret organization. Let's hear what to say when you have a list price up here. And I'm raising my hand, and then you have rebates in between. And then you have a price down here for the consumer. How come we don't have everybody pay that that prices down here? What do you expect the pharmacy benefit managers these PM's? What do you say to defend themselves? Well, they've been defending themselves a lot recently. So I'm expecting to hear the similar thing. Which is in the end they actually reduce overall drug spending because they can control what drugs are millions of customers by and so they can demand these discounts a lot of a and analyst I talked to say there's no question they've reduced spending mostly by directing consumers to generic drugs, which are cheaper than brand name drugs. But in areas where there are no generic the benefits less clear. They say. They loads of money off the list prices, but many experts including the secretary of health and human services. Are you the rebate system drives that initial list price artificially, high the PBS say that's the pharmaceutical manufacturers fault because they're the ones setting that price. Will are they correct about that well to some extent? Yes. Drug companies choose their initial price, and they raise those list prices every year even on drugs that are the same. They say they have to do this. So they can offer PBMR's better rebates. So there's this big blame game going on. And Senator Grassley even noted it when I talked with him, the pharmaceutical companies pointed their figure at the PBS the PB M's point their finger at the pharmaceuticals, and then both of those are pointing their fingers at the health insurance companies. So Senator Grassley is really frustrated here he actually sort of Britain that he would call another hearing bring all three groups together because he. Wants to get them all at the same table and figure out what's going on. So what happens next at this point? I mean, do you expect anything to actually change? Well, there's a lot of action out there on drug prices. And particularly in this rebate issue legislation in the house and the Senate both Democrats and Republicans Senator Grassley says he's going to craft a Bill, but even more immediately. The Trump administration has proposed making these after the factory Bates illegal that they would require PM's instead to negotiate for discounts up front, which being customers would pay the lower price. Even if they haven't met a deductible, but those discounts at no longer be confidential. All right. That's NPR's. Alison kodjak thinks Vang's turnout was way up in the two thousand eighteen midterms. And in the southwest that translated into gains for Democrats now. Republicans in south western states are pushing bills the change the rules around voting. Critics say these changes are designed to reduce turnout in future elections from Phoenix cage as es Brett Jaspers reports on how it's playing out in Arizona Republicans had full control. Role of Arizona's politics until last fall then after democratic turnout surged they lost four out of nine statewide races, including a US Senate seat. Now. Republicans in the legislature are proposing new voting rules that could make it more complicated to cast a ballot one change would remove some people from the permanent early voting list. It's says permanent early voting lists. I don't know why everyone being the operative word which is early. That's the Bill sponsor Republican state. Senator Michele Eugene t Rita people on the permanent early voting list. Get ballots mailed to them so that they can mail them back or drop them off on election day. You Rita wants counties to purge people from that list, if they don't vote using an early ballot in two consecutive election cycles, we wanna make sure that the lists are up to date. That's just good practice that makes sense on frankly, any kind of database that you. You have that you're really communicating with those who want to be communicated with and that are using the service is a service. It's a convenience local election officials say they already have ways to maintain clean voting rolls. The secretary of state's office estimates two hundred thousand voters currently on the permanent early voting list. Didn't vote in both twenty sixteen and twenty eighteen but the office also says the bill's language is unclear making it hard to estimate the impact democratic Representative Thenia Solomon calls. It voter suppression to purge the permanent early voting list known as pebble or people. There is a creek debate around whether or not in his Pavel or people. But I find it fitting that if this Bill passes the list will no longer be permanent. And so one might call it evil. Republicans dispute this is an attempt to make voting more difficult. The Bill doesn't remove people from the registration rolls. Just the mailing list for early ballots. Some local officials say it will create more confusion. Republican lawmakers have proposed other bills this legislative session that have drawn criticism from voting rights groups, including one that bans paying workers for each voter registration form they turn in. We are seeing both the good and bad side of the fall out of the twenty eighteen election. Danielle Lang is an attorney with the campaign legal center, which works with voting rights groups across the country, including in Arizona. She says lawmakers often reexamined voting laws after an election. For example. There's a push from Iowa's Republican governor to make it easier for convicted felons to. Restore their right to vote after release that effort is bipartisan on like era zone as Bill which has advanced along party lines all Americans care about election integrity, and yet these issues get framed in very unhelpful partisan ways, Republicans control the Zona legislature, the Bill to purge the permanent early voting list still has to pass the full house GOP governor Doug ducey's office says it doesn't comment on.

"You'll rebound Lloyd, you'll rebound. You always do might be last place the KTAR poll right now, but Lloyd lasts. Yeah. There's a lot. There's a lot of basketball to play. So I wouldn't worry about it, man. There's people who are like. Yeah. I make reeds for this person who likes North Carolina. Gotta go with North Carolina. We sure well. My wife picked Tennessee to be in the finals because we went to Tennessee last year. The reason why not roll tide. No, no, go vowel. Yes. It is. Let me play this clip for you. This is this is this is a little bit interesting. Listen to this. Yes. Nine thousand nine hundred eighteen instead of two thousand eighteen why would a man say it's nine hundred eighteen not twenty eighteen he's living in the past. Well, I don't know the Zona legislature. I think he thinks that the police are living in the past. Let's let me tell you the story. So there is a man in Kansas. He is African American. He's sixty one years old is a marine veteran, and he moved into a new home for tastic. Right. It's great. Sure. All right when he was moving boxes in. The well, some some, you know, stupid white person called the police autumn, obviously black and he's got a television in his hands. And he's he's walking on the lawn and he's probably stealing something. So they called the police on 'em. And. They didn't arrest him. But they made improve that it was his house. And when they did this the cops they also had a gun and the handcuffed him cops always have a gun. Yeah. They didn't they pointed gone. They held him at gunpoint. All right. Here's a bit of the of the audio from the incident. Is this all necessary because given the circumstances? You're moving into three three o'clock in the morning right now man, and we've been having a lot of break ins, Harry. Okay. See I didn't understand the story about why they would do this to the man until they told me what time it was three AM to thirty AM three AM. So in the middle of the night. He's moving all these boxes. He's got a TV in his hand. Doors open somebody calls the police the police get there, and they just want him to prove that it's his house. Yeah. He did prove it's his house while he was in handcuffs held at gunpoint. Okay. But it doesn't mean they're are holding a gun to his head. It means that. Approach the house. He says hey they were motivated by race. And I'm thinking weren't they motivated by time of day. If it's three in the morning, everything that happens in the world it happens badly at three AM. So isn't it reasonable for the police to say, let's go check that out. It's three in the morning if it was both what if it was motivated by time of night and race. How? See I gotta pick one. I don't think you can do both. I think you absolutely can do. But what is your your? A white guy. And it's three in the morning. I'm checking out the white guy three in the morning, and this guy this black guy saying he doesn't believe that would happen. What they saw was a black man in a predominantly white neighborhood moving in at dark thirty in the morning instead of a person that had just purchased a house and moving stuff in in a hurry. It's not a very good welcoming to the neighborhood for this for this heard that term before dark thirty in the morning. Dr have you heard of that? Now dark thirty know. No. I don't know. That's when I filled out my bracket. No wonder it went so bad. I know that there are a lot of stupid white people out there. We talk about this all the time the stupid white person who calls the cops on an innocent black person. Right. You had. Babysitting while black. There's a black man who went to the park any add some white children with them. And obviously that I keep up and clearly stole. I mean, clearly he is kidnapped and some stupid white person calls the cops and awful. There was a little girl who was African American. And she had I think lemonade stand or she was selling water inside of the street and some dumb. You know, white person said d do you have a permit for that? She called the cops. So we hear this stuff. All the time. We have stupid white people calling the cops on innocent black people. No question. This man is innocent. No question. It's his home. But really at three in the morning. You don't think someone is going to probably call the police and say Alex a little bit odd to me. Well, I'm no cop. My grandfather was though, so I clearly have it in my jeans. He was unloading this moving truck and he had facing the street. You can see there was nothing in it. Well, my gut tells you to say you can see there's nothing to be there. But it's it's open. It's facing the street. My gut tells me if you stole a bunch of stuff from somewhere might you back the truck in so people couldn't see what was in the back of it. Maybe I tend to think so. But I think if you're doing something to three in the morning. And you're out of house, and it looks suspicious. Why can't? Check it out. But you just said and it looks suspicious, right? What makes what makes something looks suspicious at three AM that isn't suspicious at three in the afternoon. Oh, this is totally suspicious. I if it was three in the afternoon, nobody's gonna talk talk to this guy. But I understand moving late in the day. I mean, you work all three AM. Maybe he works a graveyard shift. And that's when he can get stuff done, and that's totally fine. And that may well be the point he had to be handcuffed and have a gun. They did not hurt them. They did not rough him up. They did not put them on the ground is kind of humiliating. I agree with you. But they wanted to check it out. I think it's odd. If you're moving into a house at three AM, I do all right when I like to prepare for this show, three AM. It sounds like it coming up next mean, it means you need some work to do in the five o'clock hour, we got the five o'clock KTAR news expansion. Fifteen minutes of commercial free.

Myers so many there's so many girls, and that's the part of it too. Like Bill Cosby like like, Michael Jackson. There are so many. And I'm not trying to discredit that. If it was just one person coming forward accusing somebody they shouldn't be taken seriously, everyone should be taken seriously. But after a while after a while. He's been doing this thirty years. And there have been numerous girls now women who have said this is what he does. This is how he does it and he's got some spend. Golly. Control over you. Boy, that's grooming. And notice how he escalated he turned into the victim. To gain sympathy. When that's exactly how he victimizes other people. So. With Martha mcsally Arizona Senator saying that she was sexually assaulted in the military. The Michael Jackson documentary. Extremely damning. And now, you have the R Kelly interview. Is there anything positive that? We can take out of this. There are three troubling stories. There's no doubt about it. There are a lot of victims. Here is it is it that like let's say somebody like Martha mcsally who's a sitting Senator said, yeah. This happened to me. Maybe other women will come out and say, hey, you know, what it also happened to me? And maybe that's a good part of a you gotta find some if you can some sort of silver lining. Okay. The silver lining user, just horrific. You're right. The silver lining is that we're talking about it. We're not stigmatizing it. We're not ignoring it. We're not trying to say well that that's horrendous. That's that's horrendous. But it never happened. The more. We talk about it, the more hopefully, people who have been victims of grooming or sexual assault or or sexual harassment or bully, hopefully, they will come forward. And unfortunately, we may find that somebody like Martha mcsally she's been victimized not once. But number a number of times that it's just not a one and done in some cases that these people are victimized over and over and over again, and that's good. That's good for us to talk about it to get it out in the open, so more people can come forward. All right. Coming up next, Becky Lynn's got the news. Detour Dan the icon is here for some traffic in second. But when we come back plaguing Susia smack is I like to call them or taking over the Zona legislature with three anti vaccine laws.

"K L I F coming up our favorite story of the day. But what it is? I know what you're not going to tell you tell me. Well, you'll have to tell me unless you've just more to do by yourself. Okay. What if you had to turn over your DNA, the state what if the state says you need to pay two hundred and fifty dollars, and then we're gonna collect your DNA? And then it could be used against you. See, I'm not a real high security conscious. I don't, you know, get worried about somebody getting my Email. You know, what I mean is like I'm just saying your DNA, right? Why was going to draw the line and say, yeah, that seems like a little bit much a little bit invasive, a little intrusive and probably unconstitutional, and by the way, what do you mean, you're going to charge me to do this two hundred fifty dollars two hundred and fifty bucks, and they're going to do this on apparently everybody who applies for, you know, a real estate are a estate jaw volunteer for a certain position even medical examiner's office can do it for bodies that come into their possession. Well, this is a this is a Bill in Arizona in the Arizona legislature. And it says the DNA must be collected from anyone who has to be fingerprinted for any sort of reason. And there are a lot of reasons you might be fingerprinted, I don't know. I don't really see this sailing through the Zona legislature. Although I really don't know anything about Arizona government. But seems like goofy idea to me. It would do we mentioned that Oregon has a Bill in the hopper to allow sixteen year olds to vote in all elections. See I just think that's a little too young. Well, I do too. And I think it's okay to say that I mean they kids can drive at sixteen. I guess if they're old enough to drive. Oh, it's not the same thing. You can you can learn how to drive safely. But you learn how to vote safely. Nobody knows that. But. You don't you don't have the life experience or the education to give you a good basis on which to judge candidates and issues. I really think it's okay to say that away sixteen year old has as started taking an interest in learning about. Well, that's good. And and that should be encouraged. And then by the time discussions by the time. She's eighteen. Right. But until then I'm sorry their children. They're still children. We want her to form her own opinions. Yeah. He tried to present the information. We'll tell you what to think. And then you know now now now. Not right. I'm just teasing. Say goodbye to the stink bug. Yes. Been wiped out because of the polar vortex ninety five percent of stink bugs, I didn't. Even know what a stink bug is. They're almost the extinct. But. That was good. How long were you sitting on that way? I just thought of this right there on the spot. Now seriously. Re released from the national pest Management Association. Citing a study from Virginia Tech university said they've determined that the recent polar vortex temperatures were like get down to fifty below in some places. It makes sense. It would kill all the bugs it killed. It said might have killed ninety five percent of all the sink bugs. They know. What it didn't kill a lot of other things. Purchasing bedbug. Yeah. That have to be killed by heat. I believe really. So it's too cold. It's global warming to take second to kill the bedbugs, bedbugs and cockroaches being bitten by bedbugs. No. Do you know what to look for? When you go to hotel to see. No, no, no. You pull back the sheep. Yeah. If you're brave enough on the on the bed. Yeah. And you look for like little black. Yeah. A little trails. Yeah. Now, he gives me the Hebrew. The study also said other invasive bugs like the emerald ash Borer and southern pine beetles may not have survived the polar vortex caterpillars. Should we be the monarch butterfly caterpillars? Should we be mourning the loss of species here? Well, I mean. Stink by there's a reason. They're here, right. In the ecosystem. There must be a reason to develop for some reason. Yeah. So I don't know. It's going to reduce birds. Diet. You don't to stink bug is. Now, you look I know what a love bugging, look one up on the computer. I'll bet you've seen them. Love bugs in Florida. If you step on a stink bug it stinks. I guess I never had that. Yeah.

We had Brent woods in his wife and studio, the former attorney general who had been openly discussing a run for Senate made his decision, and that decision was he will not be running for the Senate seat here in Arizona and not know the answers now, and you know, what I I like grant woods. The likable guy. Anybody listens to this show knows that all right because? I'm a little frustrated by this only because we have a lot in common. I've been registered Republican my entire life up until about six eight months ago about about like grant. Right. Yeah. You're right. And the reason he switched parties. And I haven't switched parties. I'm just not a registered Republican independent now is for a lot of the same reasons. The fringes things are being pulled too far to the French. I'm in the middle. There's some issues where I'm very conservative some issues where I have, you know, liberal viewpoints. I'm like, you know, fiscally conservative socially liberal that kind of thing. And I felt he was similar, and I think we need candidates like that. And by him saying, he couldn't, you know, the the primary would get too difficult. Yeah. That he we what does that leave us? Yeah. It is a frustrating the entire system. We're actually going to talk to a political consultant one of the the the movers and shakers here or there in Arizona at the top of the hour. More about this decision. What that means moving forward. But Arizona has decided that it knows the state of Arizona, at least some of our elected officials know that there is a new public health crisis out there measles. No, all the way. You would think a. Opioids now. No, it's not that the public health crisis that the Zona legislature is considering issuing a declaration on pornography. Online porn. Okay. Yes. All right. Concerns about the proliferation of erotic images online. We have state Representative Michelle Udal from Mesa bringing forward a measure that would declare pornography a crisis in the state of Arizona. Does that mean like, okay, it's a crisis? Not that. I believe that. But we've deemed. In a crisis. It's it's it's it's the legislative equivalent of of I'm going to send you a sternly worded Email just. Okay. That that I've seen have you seen these rankings of websites like the biggest websites in the world. When you look at like, the top ten I think seven of them were porn site. Nah. Oh, yeah. It's not even close to tell the crisis. But that's not that's worldwide. Is there any different? No, we are not uniquely better or worse. He doesn't think. We'd even if that's the case. Is there a crisis, but what's the crisis? They're looking for some sort of legislation that that would perform tempt to restricted and there is a first amendment issue. Even if you firmly believe that pornography has no place in no social redeeming value. And and shouldn't be there is a first amendment issue. That's already several blah when it comes to the supreme court. We we had cases of back then it was magazines pornography, porn magazines going before. And and the supreme court saying, they can publish anything. They darn well want to. So why do you want to restrict the internet? And then you get into what is someone's definition of porn. Yeah. It's kind of like, the, you know, I know. No. Because Michelle you don't get to decide what you can what images you candidates online. Here's where I think the conversation. Should I think this is crazy? But if if proponents of this are so concerned about sexual exploitation. Or they're so concerned about the health of minors. Because I mean, let's face it kids don't need to see that garbage. Agreed. If you're so concerned about those things which are very admirable things to be concerned about her. Why don't we have better sex education in school? Teach them how to deal with. Pornographic images teach him how to deal with those urges are those feelings as opposed to attempt to put the internet back in the tube center for disease control and prevention ranks us here in Arizona, fourth lowest in the country for offering comprehensive sexual education in middle school. So there's a disconnect there, it's a health crisis. But don't you dare talk to our kids about right? But how do you in health class? I look at it from a practical standpoint, besides the fact that I don't think we need any new laws that that how do you stop people, and what is your? It's your morals. Don't get me wrong. But your morals aren't everyone else's morals. How do you stop people from viewing images on the internet? And who do you want the gatekeeper to be, hey, you know, what if you missed it about forty minutes ago, we had former Arizona attorney General Grant woods in studio making the announcement that he will not run for US Senate missed any of it was a fascinating interview as to why.

Did you heard about the one where they were basically force manufacturers, or at least the distributors of internet connected devices to have software on there that would block the ability to to view porn on the internet, and you'd have to pay twenty dollars to the state of Arizona to get it unblocked? So so that would basically make the state of Arizona an agent for selling porn, right? I guess that's kind of a way to look at it. By the way, the money would go to a border wall. That's how the proposal looked at. That thing is is dead. Never even got a committee hearing and the lady who was walking around the legislature said, yeah, forget it. But let's let's talk about a couple of bills that do maybe have a shot here. One introduced by democratic Representative Pamela powers Hanley of Tucson. She's the main sponsor of a so-called death with dignity Bill at the Zona legislature. This is basically a right to die Bill. It would. Allow terminally ill patients to legally in their life after consulting their doctor and providing seen written permission as well. As a waiting period. She says listen, this is this is needed. I don't take that the government should get in between those decisions more people every year come to the capital and contact legislators and say I should be able to make that kind of decision my own decision. All right, talking to a TV partners ABC fifteen their democratic state rep, Pamela powers as well. As Representative rich ondra is that his name who's also a democrat. So they'll know if they're going to get enough Republican support on this a lot of pushback comes from the right on these. I'll tell you I had a friend who recently whose mother passed away, and she had she had breathing problems. COPD the whole thing he's from Canada. And she was essentially allowed to time it out for self and the doctors really what they did is they made a comfortable helped her basically. Fall asleep, and then disconnected her, and you know, it was it was a very dignified way to die. And brought a lot of peace to everybody, including the skies. Mom. So there might be something there. You know? And really, honestly, if you're really the one making the decision about ending your own life should people be barred from helping you if that's the case. And it is you have a legitimate reason, you'd have been massive pain. You just don't feel like your quality of life is worth it anymore. And then there's another Bill that's been introduced this. One people are gonna maybe scratch their heads a little bit waving sales tax on diapers baby formula and feminine hygiene products bipartisan Bill, introduced by democratic Representative Daniel Hernandez junior and Representative Republican Representative TJ shope. I can tell you from experience that this is a really good thing removing sales taxes from diapers. And not because I've just a changed in bottle out of diapers through the years as a dad, but I served on the board of the former valley of the sun, diaper, Bank and people here that diaper Bank. What's a diaper? Well, no federal programs. You don't like food stamps that pays for diapers? And if you don't have fresh diapers, you can't take your kid to daycare, which means you can't have a job, which it's it's a giant cascading effect.

"Customer's always say we recommend wines. News ninety two three. All right over the weekend. The president announced a some kind of deal that has already been pooh-poohed by the Democrats for his border wall for Dacca students. Well, we know that the president has wanted to build a border wall or some kind of wall for three years now going on what three or four years now. But one Arizona lawmakers proposing a Bill that would be an I'll just put it mildly unique in its concept in order to fund the wall. Arizona Representative Gail Griffin proposed house Bill twenty four forty four. That would require electronic manufacturers to install pornography. Blocking software on Arizona. Residents phones computers, and or tablets, you would pay a one time fee for this access. And that would go to fund the wall. So what who's this gale, Greg Dale grits, and what she saying let the perverts pay for the wall. Basically, basically. Yeah. Look, we know that the porn industry is billions of dollars of an industry. Okay. There's there's no doubt about that. Right. But does it make sense for this tax money to go into a new account called the John McCain human trafficking and child exploitation fund now, and I'll tell you why? There is no way Cindy McCain John McCain's wife who is a very at the forefront of human trafficking, which includes sex trafficking would want any part of this to fund a wok. So you're going to do is you're going to use exploited women for the most part in the porn industry to access money to then what stop people who wanna come here. The McCain's would want. None of this. And it doesn't make any sense Gail Griffin. Why would the McCain's want? Well, first of all Trump's wall tied to them. Bingo. I mean, it's not that McCain was against a wall. He was for border security. Yes. So I don't know why the McCain's would want Trump's wall. Tied to them. But the way that that the money would would would funnel its way to the wall is through pornography. The McCain's don't want that either. I just I find it. I'm not surprised by this at all at all. I mean, we have some I'm surprised that it's a woman came up with this idea where did she work MAC? You mean Gail they work Gail Griffin works at the Zona legislature? Oh, I mean. I don't know her. I don't I know nothing about this person. She could be the nicest person in the world or she could be the worst person in the world like Kelly Townsend. I don't know. I don't know. But what I do know is at the Arizona legislature. They have the wacky est. People with the wacky est. Ideas, some of them just like driving drunk all over town. And then they like taking their little legislative immunity and trying to get out of it. You got some people like going one eighty and they're they're bragging before got another guy who did how do you get kicked out because he was harassing all the women. Okay. Small caveat, though. These people didn't come up with bills like this. It's a weird Bill, but the people down there, you're you're right. You're right. But I'm surprised this Bill came from a woman to fund the war. It just makes no sense. And like you said like, I said, you think McCain's would want any part of this. Absolutely. Not coming up at five fifteen Arizona. Governor Doug Ducey is monthly in studio with us. But at four like we do every weekday.

"So are we going to pass a law now because a police officer was killed by someone texting and driving Clinton? Townsend was killed by somebody who is texting and driving. And I don't put a whole lot of faith in the Zona legislature. You already know that. Is this going to be something that Arizona gets done? Well, there are two bills one by JD Meszaros, another by Representative John Cavanaugh that have been put together. And they're going to be a little different. But basically, it's if you use a wireless communication device manually, right or send a written message message. Now, I don't know whether this is going to be a secondary or prime offense. But it would be a not a not a city wide ban. It would be a statewide ban. We are one of three states that do not have this type of ban. I'm with you though. I don't I don't I just don't see this passing. I see politicians jumping on this because of the tragedy of the Salt River police officer who was killed. But at the same time, I also see that Arizona doesn't like to have nanny state rules or doesn't like to have government all up in their business. And I don't know if we'll ever have a texting and driving law. Yeah. Orban I should. Well. I mean, there's one thing that could there are a couple of things that could solve the texting and driving situation. I mean, I know a law you mean or oh, no not through a law. I know I have a friend who says there's something on her phone. That basically turns it off when it moves like an app or something. So let's say you have that app. Let's say MAC you have that app. I try and text you while you're in the car, right? You have no idea. I'm texting you. But I know because I get a text back from you. That says I can't send you a message because I'm driving right? I'll be back to you in a few minutes, something like that. So moving you get you received money can't text any. Yup. The other thing is there's going to be a day where we're going to have self driving cars everywhere. That's a long time from now that's going to be everywhere. I mean, you asked me what do I want to self driving car? No I like to drive. I like my car I want I want to steer it. I want to be in charge. I don't want to sit in the passenger seat where the car drives itself, and then I can text and drive so laws. Yeah. You could come up with laws. You could come up with more technology. But I'd rather see the technological road than the law road the legal road. I'll tell you that. Yeah. I I don't know. I don't have any faith in Arizona government to get anything done the legislature. They today they work part time. I don't think they care very much not a fan never have been. And again, it's Arizona's Arizona's spirit really this has been a state that doesn't like being told as citizens. What to do are we going to change your behavior because a police officer was killed by someone texting and driving? I don't think. So I know so, and but I don't think a law would change our behavior either. So you say, I will I'll do it. Well, people still speed they still drink and drive. Right. I mean, it's not a failsafe. Sure bet that we put a law out there. And we're still not going to be talking about somebody texting hit and killed somebody else. Forty-seven other states have banned texting and driving statewide. Okay. We are right in the middle of the big four at four. We still have big story three and four to go. All right. Becky Lynn is on Arizona's news. News station. KTAR.

"Ten years. Now, we've been talking about people who text and drive whether you remember the old style way of you know, how many how many times did you have to press that button on your flip phone to make see NAMA go right or whether you speak to texts now voice texts voice tax. We we all have the ability with a smartphone to text people. But the texting and driving issue has been at least in Arizona, something that really the Zona legislature has tried a couple of times to pass legislation, but they haven't been successful. So now, they're inept we are one of three states that don't have a texting and driving ban. But cities do some cities do here in the valley Glendale places have different laws. Yeah. But if you want to solve it the Einstein of problems, Mr. Gaydos has come up with a way he thinks we can solve this problem easily. I don't think anything's easy. Okay. Here's how I would solve the problem. Because I don't think a police officer. And I know this sounds awful who was killed. Because of some guy texting and driving going to lanes over and killing this cop. I don't think that's gonna make people out there. Stop texting and driving. Well, that won't happen. He I I'm not going to be that guy. I'm not going to the guy. That's worse. Two lanes and hit somebody. Well, here's what I would do. I put the speed cameras backup. Now hear me out. Remember, the speed cameras have many years ago? Napolitano's put put them up. And it would slow you down because it would give you. Well. It's the speed cameras are coming up in. Let's just say, I don't know two hundred feet or whatever you wonder feet, right everyone slowed down right because you don't want to get a ticket. And where the cameras were right? Okay. And so I always liked the speed cameras because I drive I drive a little bit fast. Okay. I knew I wasn't gonna ticket anywhere near the speed cameras because they gave you a warning. So I always liked to speak cameras. I would change the speed cameras into Tex cameras. Now, you need to figure out certain technology to do that. Because police officers are not going to be able to catch everybody or anybody. I mean a lot of times on the highway. It's very difficult to sit to stay to stop the highway to text and drive. Yeah. But what if there's a photograph? What if there's a picture? So what I would do is this. You know, how we've built technology right here in Arizona and on the I seventeen we've got some different ways thermal-imaging all that kind of stuff to stop wrong way drivers. Well, we could go and build technology and come up with some type of technology that would stop texting and driving. You gotta be really serious about it. If you want to do it. I mean, let's say there are cameras. Let's just say there are cameras will take the one. Oh, one there cameras on the one on one or maybe they don't flash every two seconds. And they're taking pictures because that could be a little bit dangerous, and that doesn't sound like it would work. But what if it rolls video? And what if there's somebody in charge that goes through that video and says, okay, there was a person that was driving on the one on one at two fifty one forty seconds in the Bali and in this person's right hand was their phone now. I don't know if they were texting on the GPS. They were looking at Facebook. Right. But it's all under distracted driving. Yeah. Would that stop people? I think that would stop people. It would certainly be a deterrent. I don't know whether it would stop everybody, but it would certainly like to speed cameras. It would certainly deter people from getting a ticket. Could it help the situation? Quick stats a hypothetical. I don't know thirty five hundred people were killed in crashes involving distracted drivers in the US in two thousand fifteen so it's twenty nineteen those numbers don't always come out every day. You know, it's more than three thousand five hundred people. Well, you know, it's been a problem in the problems only gonna get worse. Now, you have social media. Now, you've GPS you've got voice texting you got all this kind of stuff. Maybe maybe the law and Arizona's should be if you're caught with your hand on the phone. It doesn't matter. What you're doing talking texting looking at a text ninety thing. But reading right. You get nailed, and if you really want to stop it. Put texts cameras not speed cameras protects cameras, and you know, what every time you get a ticket one hundred bucks two of the teeth behind it. If you want and say, oh, you could decimal one hundred eight and the second one is five hundred right? I mean, you could do that. If you wanted to you could. Would it stop everybody? I don't know this. You can never stop everybody. What you're trying to do is is make the highways as safe as possible, the two strangest ways the cops are finding new ways to catch texting and driving ones in Chattanooga. Chattanooga, Tennessee, where Becky Lynn has her vacation home is tied now. Geez. Chattanooga, Tennessee, they patrol in a tractor trailer. So they're sitting up higher than everybody else, usually. Yeah. Five reiver's, and then they pull you over or they call ahead. Tractor trailers pulling you over and they said that would be that would be scary. Good luck. And what catching me the second one is in Bethesda, Maryland were an officer disguised himself as a homeless man stands next to a busy intersection looking for money. But then radios ahead two officers down the road of people who are texting that. He notices. There are a lot of different ways. You can do it. Yeah. You can do this in Scottsdale and put cops on their bikes and have them go in and out of the traffic. And and if you catch.
