FROM THIS EPISODE

The North American Free Trade Agreement gives U.S. and Mexican trucks free range in each other’s countries, but the U.S. has refused to implement it for fourteen years. President Bush has started a pilot program, and the first Mexican truck delivered a load of steel in North Carolina on Monday. Now Congress is trying to put on the brakes. Tonight we’ll hear about traffic safety, the environment, homeland security, and international treaties.

Main Topic Here Come The Mexican Trucks 17 MIN, 33 SEC

Both houses of Congress want to keep Mexican trucks off U.S. highways, despite the provisions of NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, passed fourteen years ago.  President Bush has already started a pilot program, but opponents in both parties say it’s a risk to traffic safety, the environment and homeland security.

Making News Schwarzenegger Calls a Special Session on Health Care and Water 6 MIN, 49 SEC

Before adjourning at 3 o’clock this morning, the State Assembly and Senate gave the Anschutz Entertainment Group, owner of Staples Center--the right to compete for 2.8 billion dollars in housing bonds. Advocates of affordable housing were opposed, but Anschutz has contributed $50,000 dollars for a ballot measure that would extend the legislators’ term limits. Also, Governor Schwartzenegger calls two special sessions on health care and water.
