Report from KVCR's Ken Vincent and Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler
Federal agencies are providing California with preliminary assistance for the Oroville Dam emergency. That's in spite of some rumors President Donald Trump is withholding aid to the state, as Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford reports.
The federal license that allows the state of California to operate the now-damaged Oroville Dam expired 10 years ago, and has been operating since then with yearly "temporary" licenses, according to reports from the Associated Press. KVCR's Ken Vincent has details.
Tens of thousands of residents downstream from Oroville Dam are still under evacuation orders, even as conditions improve for workers trying to alleviate the structural emergency plaguing the dam. KVCR's Ken Vincent has more.
At a gathering in the state capital last week, the Republican mayor of San Diego and the Democratic mayor of Sacramento agreed -- to different degrees -- that California should try to work with the Trump administration on federal infrastructure improvement proposals. KVCR's Ken Vincent has more.
After protests resulted in the cancelation of a controversial speaker at UC Berkeley this week, President Trump tweeted a threat to withdraw federal funds from the university. KVCR's Ken Vincent has more on whether the threat could be carried out.
