8:10 am
liz: new developments, the house has passed a massive bipartisan infrastructure bill, setting the stage for another round of negotiations next week at the next phase of president biden's agenda. one hour ago, the president spoke about the infrastructure bill's passage. pres. biden: i believe that 50 years from now folks will look back and say this was the moment, this was the period, this year and the next couple of years, when america decided to win the competition of the 21st century, to get the game full board. my message to all of the folks, let's get to work. let's get this done. liz: here is white house correspondent mary alice parks with more. >> the motion is adopted. reporter: overnight, democrats celebrating a win, hugs breaking out in the chamber.
8:11 am
nancy pelosi raising her fist in the air. the house of representatives breaking a logjam between progressive democrats and moderate my sending a massive $1 trillion bipartisan info structure built of the president's desk three months after the bill passed in the senate. >> the success is attributed to president biden. he literally made the difference. his strong message. reporter: in a statement, president biden saying we took a monumental step forward as a nation, a once in a generation bipartisan infrastructure bill. 13 republicans giving speaker pelosi the vote she needed to get it over the finish line. six progressive democrats opposed it. >> what do you say to republicans who voted? >> thank you. reporter: the legislation calls for the single largest investment in the nation's roads, bridges, and airports in decades as well as billions for electric vehicle charging stations, clean drinking water,
8:12 am
internet, and ports. president vowing to keep up the fight on the rest of his agenda. pres. biden: these bills will change the lives of minds of people and hundreds of millions of people across the country for years to come. reporter: in august, 19 republican senators including mitch mcconnell crossed the aisle in support of this infrastructure bill, but progressive democrats in the house stalled a vote on it, hoping to lock in a deal around the rest of the president social spending priorities first. friday, the president had had enough. pres. biden: let's get this done. reporter: working the phones, talking to members of congress, speaking to pelosi alone four times. in the end, a breakthrough deal. >> we will trust each other because the democratic party is together on this. we are united. but it is important for us to get both bills done. reporter: mary alice parks, abc news, capitol hill. liz: this is a big win for president biden and the democrats. u.s. representative for san rafael jared huffman was in
8:13 am
washington for that vote and he is joining us live this morning. thanks for being here. i know it was a late night for you. take us behind the scenes. what do you believe happened in those final hours that led this to pass? rep. huffman: there is an old saying, you don't want to watch sausages being made. yesterday was a perfect example of that. nobody likes the messy process that we have been going through, but we got a good outcome. the reason it has been difficult is no congress in modern history has tried to do more because we must tackle these problems with such a major -- a razor thin majority. it takes constant effort behind the scenes and a lot of leadership that the public never really sees, but i am pleased that we got there. in addition to the traditional infrastructure, the infrastructure of the 21st century that we will start building because of this new
8:14 am
law, even importantly if we get commitments on the build back better act that will be moving forward to get us in the game on the climate crisis. liz: i want to talk about build back better in a moment. 13 republicans voted with the majority of democrats to pass the infrastructure bill. from a political perspective, how big of a feat is this for democrats and the biden administration, especially given the election results we saw this week that seemed to spell some trouble for democrats? rep. huffman: it is obviously good news. it puts points on the board. it shows that we can govern, that we can work together. it is one brand for president biden who said he wanted to do things however possible in a bipartisan way. liz: speaking of build back better, the infrastructure bill going to the president's desk, but now a vote needs to happen on the second phase of this agenda. what do you think it will take to get that bill to pass? if you heard the president this morning, he seemed very confident he will have the votes. do you agree? rep. huffman: i think we have
8:15 am
secured the commitments we need. that is why we did not move forward last night. this bill will pass the house no later than the week of the 15th. we think that we have things pretty well-positioned to clear the senate as well, but that is the second step that still has to happen. liz: are there any sticking points for you personally in the build back better act? i know you have been pushing for investments in climate. rep. huffman: i have. the sticking point would be if some of the things that we have fought to include start coming out for unraveling. -- or unraveling. that is what we are looking for. liz: what are the kleiman investments you have been working on to be included in this bill -- climate investments you have been working on to be included in this bill? rep. huffman: big investments to electrify our transportation sector. the transportation sector is one of the top sectors in the economy when it comes to carbon pollution. so we have to quickly pass the
8:16 am
infrastructure to put the tax credits in place so that people can get off of fossil fuels and buy ev's, electric buses, electric vehicle fleets, the postal fleet and the rest of the federal government. all of these things are in there and more incentives for clean renewable energy to finish the job of cleaning up the power sector. just a ton of really important resiliency investments. we are threatened by sealevel rise. we are beginning to invest in the resilience that we will need going forward. liz: it seems like one sticking point for some members of congress is the price tag of this bill. is that a concern for you? there is always this debate about are these climate initiatives going to hurt the economy, help the economy, and try to find that line. rep. huffman: when you look at the trillions of dollars in
8:17 am
damages that we are sustaining, virtually every year because of extreme weather disasters, i think you begin to put it in context. these suggestions are modest relative to the crisis that we are trying to stave off. the cost of not doing this is far greater and the other important piece is that it is fully paid for. the tax fairness that is reflected in this package is one of the more popular pieces. you do not usually think of raising more taxes as being good politics, but the american people have come to see that it is time for the wealthiest americans and these large corporations that constantly abate taxes to pay their fair share so that we can make a call investments. liz: absolutely. speaking of climate, i know you are headed to cop 26 in glasgow. what is the message you plan to bring to the world stage? rep. huffman: it is an important message. it is one that is bolstered by
8:18 am
the progress we made last night. the u.s. is back in the game in a big way and also leading by example with real commitments. that is what the other countries of the world need to see and hear because we will be asking them to join us in those commitments. liz: congressman huffman, we appreciate you taking the time this morning. thanks. rep. huffman: thank you. liz: speaking of fires, the caldor fire has created a challenge for winemakers in el dorado county. the winery is located on the line of the destructive fire and now they are working to keep the taste of ash out of their bottles. 95 tons of grapes have been harvested. the winemakers says right away, he could taste the remnants of smoke. up the road at lava cap winery, 15% to 20% of its production was impacted. >> it was a shame we were not able to get all of the cabernet off, but given the scale of the risk, i think we escape relatively unscathed. liz: some varieties are impacted
8:19 am
more than others because of the way that the grapes absorb smoke compounds through their skins. a sad story to tell you about. a san francisco woman is facing possible blindness in one eye after being shot with a paintball last weekend. hairstylist zoe was sitting at a bus stop waiting for a ride home after friday's concert when somebody drove by and shot paintballs at her and her boyfriend. she says a paintball hit her in the left lower eyelid, cut her skin, and left her bleeding. >> i was hit in my leg, and then in my eye and hand, because i felt my hand sting and i was like peeling something off of my face. the second i came to, i was like i am blind, i cannot see, because everything was very dark at that point. liz: a scary story. the paintball likely damaged the lens of her eye. doctors do not know if the
8:20 am
blindness is permanent. because of the injury, she is unable to work and might face cataract surgery in the future. her boyfriend has set up a gofundme account to help pay for her medical bills. walgreens will start vaccinating children ages five to 11 against covid. appointments are available on their website. hundreds of young children got vaccinated yesterday and several other counties will begin vaccinations for this age group today, including marin and san mateo counties. san francisco is celebrating the first full day of vaccinations for young children. the city is holding a family event in the excelsior at 20 norton street near mission street. the neighborhood is home to many essential workers and others at risk for covid. the event runs from 9:30 to 3:00. let's get a check outside. lisa: a late sunrise, 7:40 this morning. tomorrow, it will be lighter, but we are looking at an early

8:42 am
in the summer and in the summer, we have a lot more light. i think if you really think about what would happen if we turn to daylight saving time year-round, in san francisco, we would not have sunrise until 8:00 in the morning in december and that would make it very hard for people to wake up. liz: some doctors say the time change may lead to long-term health effects like increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and even cancer. daylight savings time ends sunday tomorrow at 2:00 a.m.. for us, at least this one night of the year, we get some extra sleep. when you wake up this early in the morning, it is pretty nice. lisa: absolutely. good morning. you can see the cloud cover made for a pretty morning. it will be a cool afternoon. we will talk about a mile there sunday and a rainy monday, coming up. liz: also next, the warriors put on a show against the pelican with gary payton throwing down

kaiser permanente. thrive liz: a technology we have been tracking at abc 7 is on display for the world at the cop 26 summit. it was developed at berkeley by a researcher believes it could be a powerful tool in the fight against climate change. dan ashley has the story. dan: for a university of california researcher, you can say the fight against climate change began on rooftops like this observatory, part of a large network of sensors that blanket the east bay and parts of san francisco. over much of the last decade, he has tracked levels of carbon dioxide along major bay area highways and local neighborhoods. it is the kind of data that could help cities monitor the aggressive carbon reduction goals being set out at the cop26 conference.
8:46 am
>> especially cities are making big claims and ambitious targets, and we want to help them understand if they are on track. dan: to grab the attention of those potential partners, he began installing the sensors where they could get noticed by a worldwide audience, the city of glasgow itself. >> we started in august deploying the sensors and so we have had 10 operating since the first of august so we have a three month record. dan: they are able to detect trends on a micro scale. recently, his team was able to document the dramatic drop in co2 emissions when bay area roads emptied out during the initial covid shelter-in-place, seen in green. he says the system is now up and running in los angeles as well with talks underway on the east coast and with at least one city in the u.k.. >> and it is really fabulous to see it coming to fruition in ways that will be helpful to cities as they try to manage greenhouse gas emissions.
