BART NEGOTIATIONS - BART and its unions continue negotiations as the threat of a strike looms. After a 4 1/2 day walk-out in July, Gov. Brown ordered both sides back to the bargaining table, but they appear to remain split over salaries and benefits. Commuters and transit agencies are preparing for a potential shut down Monday morning.
OAKLAND SURVEILLANCE - Against protests by civil rights activists and privacy advocates, the Oakland City Council has unanimously approved a controversial surveillance center. They say the ability to continuously monitor video surveillance will help police respond to emergencies and make Oakland safer. Critics say the Domain Awareness Center could threaten civil liberties and turn Oakland into a police state.
FBI BUST - In one of the biggest nationwide busts of child sex trafficking, the FBI has rescued 105 youth and arrested more than 100 alleged pimps. The FBI designated the Bay Area as a top hot spot for child sex trafficking; of the 76 cities included in the bust, the highest number of children were rescued in San Francisco, and the second-highest number of pimps were arrested.
Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Tom Vacar, KTVU; Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; and Aimee Allison, San Francisco Department on the Status of Women. duration 27:46 STEREO TVRE
2:00 amWashington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5305H] Gridlock in Washington is nothing new, but is it getting worse? As Congress prepares to start its month-long August recess, it is on track to being the least productive in history. Is the political polarization that has gripped Capitol Hill to blame or is the lack of results intentional? On issue after issue from the debt ceiling to immigration reform to gun control, Democrats and Republicans have failed to reach any compromises or comprehensive solutions.
On Friday, the House will vote for the 40th time to roll back the Affordable Care Act passed in 2010. While repealing or dismantling "Obamacare" remains a top priority for the GOP, the chances it will happen are almost non-existent with the current Democratic-led Senate.
Fissures within the Republican Party are also contributing to gridlock. The division was evident last year during Mitt Romney's failed presidential run. Fast forward to today and new battles are brewing between mainstream conservatives like Senator John McCain and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and libertarians and other Tea Party members like Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
Meanwhile President Obama continues his campaign-style push for his second-term agenda. He's also gearing up for another showdown with lawmakers over the debt ceiling that could potentially lead to a government shutdown in September.
Gwen Ifill examines what's really going on in Washington and what it will take to get the White House and Congress to breakthrough the legislative gridlock and away from what looks to be the new normal in governing and politics with Dan Balz of The Washington Post and author of "Collision 2012", Jackie Calmes of The New York Times, and John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News. duration 24:10 STEREO TVRE
