KPIX Eyewitness News report from August 4th 1967 featuring press conferences by State Assembly Speaker Jesse Unruh and State Senator George Moscone, who express disappointment at the failure of a bill to provide $10 million for creating temporary jobs. Unruh wanted to address recent civil unrest in California's cities and blames the bill's failure on political "provincialism" and Moscone explains that: " I think the Speaker was extremely upset ... and I share his disgust ... This is a bill that however small would have added in some way to give the ... people in the unemployed community ... the obligation and opportunity to make some money. And I just have to believe that nobody riots if they have a full pocketful of money and are able to feed their children."
