This afternoon at 2:00 San Diego City Council will take up a proposal to raise the minimum wage.

In more newsy news

San Diego City Council is meeting today and on the agenda …

A modified agreement with the Tourism Marketing District or TMD and a mellower immigration reform referendum.

The TMD deal hit the spotlight when Mayor Filner refused to sign the agreement unless the contract was changed. After lots of political infighting some changes were made and it looks like the agreement will go though.

Last week some on the City Council tried to pass the immigration reform referendum but others on the council didn’t like the language. So some changes were made and it is back in chamber today too.

And in court today

The arraignment for the Marine accused of murdering a Navy veteran and leaving his body tucked in a sleeping bag in the back seat of an SUV parked near a grocery store.

And sentencing for Jesus Arteaga Garcia for the murder of his pregnant estranged wife in front of her 4 and 6 year-old children
