9:17 pm
repairing are are are decaying infrastructure, whether it's. undergrounding, undergrounding power lines which important california where mass transit. what what have you, but it but because it's tied to the other bill build back better. bill. became a hostage essentially to that or the other way around the way that you look at it. so it's something that needs about 3 or 4 billion dollars, extra per year for the next 5 years. on top of what we normally get from the federal government for california. so to get to. it's a big thing for california and it's a big thing for some of the other states that you saw where that where there was republican crossover. but every once sarah holding their breath as what happens next. and the build back better build. but this is still it's up once in a generation investment in our physical infrastructure. so there's a lot there's a lot of good to become fat. okay. so sticking with the infrastructure bill that was just the part that was passed. what's going to change here in the bay area. do you know what projects are being targeted are. >> what roads could be improved. well, i mean, first
9:18 pm

9:19 pm
country. where the democrats lost ground was because the democrats didn't have anything to point to president biden, the aiding the point too, in terms of accomplishments beyond what had been sort of it. wright held over in terms of in terms of covid really from the trump administration. r so these are the kinds. this is the kind of thing where people are saying, well, you know, you promise you could come to dc and get things done. what if you this. they had to get this. they had to get this passed. >> all right. so on to the next, though, you've got one thing dunbar about this next part this build back better plan. it sounds like they're not going to tackle it until after this recess. so we'll be back. i think was november 15th was the date. so what are the chances of that part, which is more social spending. that's child care and college tuition. what what's the future of that part of the bill. >> that that mean that bill is going to be the real crux of whether or not the biden administration can point to something groundbreaking. i think that. but part of the problem is going to be that
9:20 pm
that the democratic party is wrestling with is the fact that it is very and you have people who are worried about trump voters in their district city of the moderates. can down one side, you the progress is saying, oh, you know, we're we're elected to do something we haven't done anything. we need to go bigger. that's on the other side and i think right now the votes are probably there. i you think that deal that was that was done in terms of getting us or to breaking infrastructure bill, which is held hostage essentially by both sides to build back better was the fact that it came through is because both sides are kind agreed on a framework to make this thing happen. but. you know, 2 weeks is a long time. and in the life of any legislation you should like to get stuff done over with and move on and don't give don't give time for people to serve make a lot of hay lot make a lot of noise. and so i think that the democrats to actually i think president biden speaker pelosi
9:21 pm
chuck schumer. we're going to be basically biting their fingernails for the next 2 weeks and to the cbo congressional budget office score on the bill comes back, which is what the moderates one order to hold the vote. and assuming there's nothing terribly horrible in that, which i don't think there will be there should be enough votes in the house. but then but then you still joe manchin and curse and cinema in the senate and democratic side because they need both of them to pass this. this is going to pass and it surely partisan vote. it's going to probably passed by 50 plus one vote. vice president kamala harris to get it passed in the senate. so. you know, there's a lot of lot of. lot of people are nervous over the next 2 democratic side. we have 2 weeks slipping simmer and they can celebrate this and then it's on to the next. that's good to see them working boilover has got to say that, you know, things are somewhat getting done despite the back and forth. but the president has said this is kind of how. >> things typically work in government. you just have to go back and forth until you're
9:22 pm
able to finally nail something down. michael yaki, as always, we appreciate the time. the conversation and the knowledge here on kron. 4 news. thank you. thanks. still ahead tonight at 9, south bay shoppers. there could be new option on the way. we'll let you know about the proposed plans for a new store and. >> how shoppers are reacting
