Governor Indicated that he will not submit a nominee for state treasurer to the Legislature before it adjourns Sept. 11. Speaking to reporters at a dedication ceremony for a new wing at Folsom Prison, the governor said: "Recognizing everything the Legislature has to do in the next few weeks, I don't imagine that they would particularly want to have one more significant item placed before them at this point. So I will take my time." The nominee would replace Jesse M. Unruh, who died Aug. 4.

Will visit Mono County today to promote tourism, confer with county supervisors and inspect a state fish hatchery. Assembly Floor Action:

Child Molesters: Passed and sent to the governor on a 47-0 vote a bill (AB 2441) by Assemblyman Charles W. Quackenbush (R-Saratoga) to require most people convicted of child molestation to undergo counseling as a condition of probation. Senate Floor Action:

Parole: Passed and sent to the Assembly on a 30-3 vote a constitutional amendment (SCA 9) by Sen. Daniel E. Boatwright (D-Concord) to empower the governor to halt the parole of convicted murderers after reviewing their cases.

AIDS: Sustained the governor's veto from the state budget of $22.5 million to finance research, treatment and other projects relating to the AIDS epidemic. Twenty-seven favorable votes were needed to override the veto; the vote on the Democratic-led attempt was 22 to 17.

Seniors: Upheld the governor's veto from the state budget of $8 million for senior citizen programs, ranging from home-delivered meals to expansion of support services for sufferers of Alzheimer's disease. The vote was 25 to 11, two votes short for an override. Committee Action:

Discrimination: The Senate Revenue and Taxation Committee approved a bill (AB 239) by Assemblywoman Gwen Moore (D-Los Angeles) to prohibit state tax deductions for business expenses at private clubs that discriminate against women and minorities. A 5-1 vote sent the bill to the Appropriations Committee.

Courts: The Senate Judiciary Committee rejected a bill (AB 301) by Assemblyman Charles Bader (R-Pomona) to increase the monetary jurisdiction of small claims courts from $1,500 to $2,500. A 2-2 vote was cast on the measure. The record then was expunged and further action was delayed until next year.

Nudists: The Senate Governmental Organization Committee approved a bill (AB 251) by Assemblyman Gerald R. Eaves (D-Rialto) to allow nudists to serve alcoholic beverages to other nudists in established nudist camp restaurants--if local county sheriffs and boards of supervisors have no objections. A 6-1 vote sent the bill to the Senate floor. Miscellany

Lobbyist Accused: The Fair Political Practices Commission filed a 13-count accusation against Sacramento lobbyist Grant Kenyon, contending that he violated state law by arranging to have $17,750 in campaign contribution checks delivered to nine legislators in the Capitol during the closing days of the 1986 session. A 1982 law prohibits the personal delivery of campaign contributions inside the Capitol or arranging for their delivery by an intermediary. The 13 checks, ranging from $500 to $3,000, went to six assemblymen and three senators. The FPPC said all of the lawmakers returned the checks. A lawyer for Kenyon denied the accusation. His 1986 clients included the California Restaurant Assn., the California Assn. of Licensed Repossessors, and the California Contract Security Guard Assn. A hearing will be held on the FPPC charge.
