Tuesday Must Reads: CHP Agrees to Step Up Patrols of Oakland; Quan Pushes to Block Warriors from Moving to SF

News stories that East Bay progressives and environmentalists shouldn’t miss:

1. The California Highway Patrol has agreed to increase its presence in Oakland, following the decision by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office to stop patrolling the city, the Trib and Chron$ report. The CHP will step up its patrols from two to four days a week under a new agreement. Late last week, county Sheriff Greg Ahern said his department would stop its two-days-a-week patrols because Oakland refused to pay workers’ comp to deputies injured on the job. The city hired the CHP and the Sheriff’s Office to patrol Oakland as a stopgap measure until OPD can hire and train more officers.
