6:03 am
this is to get a complete picture of what brought the plane down in a field about 1000 yards from the sonoma skypark airstrip. a single engine plane crashed around 12:45 pm yesterday afternoon. on board, 38-year-old, william goldman, a woman and coleman's son and daughter. william goldman died and the women and children were taken to hospitals. investigators and first responders rushed to the scene shortly after the crash. dispatched right away. fire and medical were dispatched right away. it's never a good thing when a plane goes down. everyone gets there as quickly as possible. >> reporter: goldman was an experienced pilot who flew mercy missions, transporting critically ill patients and their families when needed. he is also the grandson of richard and rhoda goldman, the san francisco threat -- philanthropists who established the goldman environmental prize. at this point, investigators are trying to find out why this plane went down yesterday afternoon. they are looking to talk with witnesses in the area and re- examine the scene to see if the
6:04 am
engine was running at the time of the crash. there are a lot of questions to be answered here in sonoma county. happening today, sentencing is set for the man accused of a deadly rampage at a christian university and the east bay. one goh is expected to receive seven consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole. he will enter a no contest plea in may. authorities accused him of killing seven people and winning three others at oikos university in 2012. he indicated he wanted the death penalty but prosecutors say due to mental health issues, they wanted to make sure he would spend the rest of his life behind bars. a hearing will be held this morning in san francisco for juan francisco lopez-sanchez,
6:05 am

6:06 am
and has been deported from the u.s. five times. republican lawmakers in washington will work through this weekend, trying to deliver on a seven-year promise to repeal and replace the affordable care act. yesterday republican leaders in the senate unveiled a new healthcare bill. it preserves the tax on people who earn more than $200,000 per year. it also allows the sale of deregulated insurance plans and $70 billion would be distributed to states to help reduce premiums. two republican senators have said they will not vote yes on the spell which means republicans cannot afford to lose another vote. >> i don't know why we didn't understand this earlier on. we are rearranging the death chair here. we are trying to make obamacare different but we are keeping it. what if we took the money and took it back home. put some restrictions on how you could use it to allow innovation to occur. keep the tax increases in place and see what they could do. >> one major area of concern is
6:07 am
that the legislation does not address an estimated $772 billion in cuts to medicaid through the year 2026. here is martha washington. >> the american people deserve more than obamacare republicans have released the second draft of the healthcare bill while privately wheeling and dealing to even bring it to the senate floor. >> it does represent a ball that reflects the concerns expressed across the conference. i think that's how we actually come together and honor our promise to repeal obama care program if they fail? >> i will be very angry about it and a lot of people will be upset. but i'm sitting, waiting for the bill to come to my desk. >> reporter: here's what's different. an additional $70 billion for the state to create their own reforms. health savings accounts can be used to pay for premiums and additional $45 billion to battle the opioid epidemic and the ability to buy cheaper plans with less coverage.
6:08 am
it's that last provision bothering some moderates. if the young and healthy can by bare-bones coverage prohibited under obamacare, then older and sicker americans would have to foot more of the bill and their premiums could skyrocket. they also do not like that medicaid cuts remain. democrats remain solidly opposed. >> this proposal is lipstick on a pig. it's cosmetic changes to a fundamentally flawed, cruel, and costly proposal. >> reporter: some conservatives back to provision giving money to the state to fund their own solution. but do not like that obamacare taxes on higher incomes are still in there. >> really come i think we're keeping obamacare as much as anything and that's not our promise. >> by next week, the congressional budget office should have an estimate on how much that healthcare bill would cost. 60 waiting in. changes could be on the way for uc campuses. coming up, new requirements are being considered for future college students. washington lawmakers can
