businesses provide their workers with health insurance will be delayed by one year. this is a key provision in president obama's sweeping health care law. the treasury department said that the plan for the delay came after the administration received requests from business groups for additional time to comply. under the affordable care act, businesses employing more than 50 - full-time employees must provide workers health insurance or they could face penalties. those penalties will now begin in 2015 after next year's congressional elections. a >> a >> >>anny:now to the latest on the george zimmerman murder trial. the judge today will hear arguments about whether to admit evidence on a criminal justice class zimmerman took that included details on florida's self-defense law. prosecutors say school records show zimmerman knew about the law, even though
4:23 am
he claimed that he did not. prosecutors also want to introduce a job application zimmerman made to a police agency in virginia and an 3 application to ride around with sanford police officers. the defense meantime, says witnesses have supported their argument that zimmerman shot unarmed teenager trayvon martin in self-defense. yesterday, a medical examiner testified that zimmerman's wounds were not life threatening and didn't reflect a person whose head had repeatedly been "slammed" against the ground. that's a key reason zimmerman has given for shooting trayvon martin. >>mark: >>james: the army psychiatrist accused of opening fire at a texas military post in 2009 was back in court today for a pre-trial hearing. major nidal hasan was originally expected to enter a plea but refused to do so. the court entered a plea of

4:25 am
russia, poland and india have basically said "no." other countries, including germany, say, he can't ask for asylum unless he is within their borders. ecuador also says, it is considering snowden's request, but he needs to reach its territory before officials there can make a decision. hours after egyptian president mohammad morsi refused to bow to a military ultimatum, military leaders are declaring that the army is willing to die to defend the country. the military has given morsi a wednesday deadline to find a solution to the violent clashes there. tens of thousands of people on the streets of egypt protesting morsi's leadership. the president's supporters with the muslim brotherhood are also demonstrating but there numbers are not as large. twenty three people were killed just yesterday, sixteen of them in clashes at cairo university. meantime, officials in israel are worried that a collapse of the islamist government in egypt could threaten the delicate peace treaty between the two countries.

4:28 am

>>james: bart and union representatives have returned to the table to continue contract talks. here's the latest on the negotiations. although it is a good sign that bart management and bart union members are meeting for the first time since since the strike began two days ago. it seems no deal has been reached at this point. bart has not received any word that workers will return to work at any point today. commuters should expect similar conditions they've faced the past two days. however if a deal is reached -- bart officials say they will get the trains back up and running as soon as possible.
4:35 am
both sides say they will continue talking and negotiating. and here are some of the sticking points in the bart negotiations. the unions says workers have not received a raise in 5 years. they are asking for a 4.5% annual increase over the next three years. but bart has only offered a 2% increase. the strike is costing the bay area 73-million-dollar each day and affecting 400- thousand commuters. the longest serving member of bart's board of director was on the picket line yesterday supporting workers. the strike is costing the
4:36 am
bay area 73-million-dollar each day and affecting 400- thousand commuters. and there were long lines as commuters waited to board ferry's crossing the bay. the san francisco bay ferry service reported that on monday there were 17- thousand 9-hundred passengers. that's three times as many as a normal day. the service expects that ridership levels will continue to soar as long as bart workers are on strike. commuters said yesterday that they are eager for bart and the workers to come to an agreement so things can get back to normal.
4:37 am
and like other transit options. cal-train is seeing an uptick in riders since the bart strike began two days ago. cal-train says it carried an additional 45-hundred customers yesterday. typically the 4th and king cal-train station in san francisco serves between 11-thousand to 12-thousand riders each day. on tuesday -- more than 11- thousand riders had already passed through the station before noon. cal- train has put and half additional staff on duty to help those who have questions at the millbrae station. we will continue to follow the latest with the bart strike. we will be providing updates on our 24-seven bay area news channel, comcast 193. we will also be providing updates on our facebook and

5:31 am
now to see what the policy is going to be. as i see some of these planes starting to fill land. that is an indication that they are possibly staffing them again. and the early hours this morning, it appears as though they are reserved for fasttrack users. we will see if that's the case today. i am continuing dialogue with the folks at caltran to see what their strategy is this morning taking a look at your approach to the bridge and tracking the ride out of the macarthur maze. you can see that 580 is already backing up into the maze here. that is where the
5:32 am
backup begins. at macarthur boulevard. 580 west about coming up for lake shore has not begin to back up. the nimitz on the north approach is starting to slow a little. your approach to the san mateo bridge is already getting a little heavy in the westbound direction with drive times at only 11 minutes. >>mark: bart officials are officially on day three of their strike. kron4's will tran is alive where there are pictures. the tinters. >>will: there are front of the lake merritt station where they have been here for an hour but they have
5:33 am
not chances since there is audience. they're holding their picket signs are hoping they reach a settlement. i tried to go down to the lake merritt station but the doors are locked. no one is allowed to go inside this particular time. we understand that negotiations took place late last night. perhaps there will be back at the bargaining table and if there is a deal reached, they could have the trains operating shortly after that. for a lot of commuters in the morning, it is too late. they are already at the ac transit center of town. people are off to a fast start. they saw what happened on monday and tuesday so wednesday, we saw people early on for--early at 420. i can tell you land. if you are leaving now from oakland
5:34 am
to some francisco, not a problem. those people we talked to said not a problem but coming back, one woman said it took about three hours. people are very frustrated with what is going on. especially active the of town center where there are pictures across the street while people are stuck in line hoping that this is very quickly. back to mark. >>mark: >>anny: continuing our team coverage we are monitoring other ways you can get around the bay area. one of the options is taking the ferry across the bay. kron4's justine waldman is alive at jacqueline and square with an update on the ferry service. >>justine: we already have a line for the first ferry set to take off at 6:00 this morning the next one up leaving at 645. they are running at every 45 minutes. this is new video just into
5:35 am
the kron4 news room with a line started to form just before 5:00 this morning. these passengers saying they are not taking any chances. it wants to take a ferry from oakland to make their way to san francisco to start their morning routine. i got a chance to talk to the first passenger airline who says he is sick of of waking up so early in the morning and he is ready for the trek to be over. >> this is a bull crap. they need to nail it out. there are a lot of writers who depend on the part. get something together asap. >>justine: and a live look now at the line that has already formed at the dock at the stamford the scope bay ferry in oakland. all lot of people standing around and getting some work done already on their phones and tablets to make the time go by again, we
5:36 am
want to pass out the same advice we've been doing all week during the strike. if you are planning to take the ferry, the year at least one hour if not 90 minutes earlier to avoid that suggestion. the ferry service is still running extra faeries and they will continue to do so as long as the strike is the one effect so we will monitor the situation, keep talking to passengers who are exhausted at this point and ready for the strike to be over. >>anny: it's like going to an airport in the way. >>mark: >>james: here is the latest on the negotiations. although it is a good sign that they are meeting for the first time since the strike began to days ago, it seems that at
5:37 am
this point, no deal has there reached where at least not to the satisfaction of striking workers. bart has not received any word that workers will return to work at any point today. commuters should expect similar conditions that they face in the past couple of days. however, if a deal is reached, bart officials said they will get the trains back up their running as soon as possible to read both sides said it will continue talking and negotiating. >>anny: we will continue to follow the latest with the strike. we will be provided updates on our 247 news channel comcast 193 as well as updates on our facebook and with your pages as well. >>james: we will take a quick break from our coverage of a deep bart strike and had over to the weather department with erica who has our forecast on this wednesday. midway through the week. and midway through the heat erica, good morning. >>erica: take a look at

5:47 am
maze as these approaches start to get crowded. check your ride to the san mateo bridge as an alternate, we are seeing a little heavier traffic flow but still a good ride here so this would be a good choice for you know galazy at on the approach. and the golden gate bridge looks good. while southbound still quite foggy but like traffic and effect this week, the car and toll called for southbound traffic has been lighter than usual. let's check the traffic map and drive times for youths. westmount 24 has slowdown. we're picking up traffic coming up from highway 13 schedule leaves into-- leading to the macarthur maze. for your right here in san jose 101 northbound picks up a little slowing
