Last week, SANDAG announced a plan to charge drivers a per-mile tax to fight climate change. The proposal caused a strong reaction from drivers, so how likely is it to move forward? Also, as San Diego works on implementing climate action in transportation, Californians at the United Nations climate conference in Scotland are working with world leaders on tackling the global threat of climate change. Plus, San Diego public health officials are urging residents to get their flu shots as soon as possible as they warn about the potential for a bad flu season ahead. Meanwhile, Veteran Affairs administrators are overruling doctors’ judgments and preventing them from sending their patients outside the VA health care system. And as the state of California is grappling with a racist past and the idea of reparations for Black descendants of slaves, CapRadio brings us the story of a Black Sacramento family and their fight to right history. Finally, Dia de los Muertos is being celebrated by many San Diegans today and tomorrow. It’s a Mexican tradition to remember and honor loved ones who have died.
