Sideshow Investigations

Law Enforcement agencies are working together to stop dangerous driving events called "sideshows". Sunday night, several cars were seen blocking intersections in Santa Rosa, with cars spinning doughnuts in the street while people stand nearby with phones recording the scene. Several arrests were made, and a few were injured when a car that had been in the sideshow crashed about a mile away. (photo courtesy ktvu.com)

Homelessness Statewide

Governor Newsom will be in Oakland today to preview emergency actions to address homelessness in the state. The Governor aims to show off a state and local effort to deploy medical services, trailers and emergency tents to help the homeless. Part of the state response is the California Access to Housing and Services Fund, which has expedited the formation of a crisis response team and made state land assets available to address homelessness in California.

Public Utilities Commission Review

A state lawmaker is demanding an extensive review of the California Public Utilities Commission to determine whether lax oversight enabled neglect at PG&E that triggered catastrophic wildfires, a messy bankruptcy and exasperating blackouts. Assemblyman Adam Gray made the request yesterday, which could turn up the heat on the commission while it plays a key role in determining PG&E's future. (photo courtesy UC Davis)
