The 37-year-old Los Angeles County Commission on Obscenity and Pornography, which had no staff, no budget and no meeting schedule, was disbanded Tuesday by the county Board of Supervisors.
The 15-member commission was established in 1964, though in recent months its roster had dwindled to six. It had met only once since 1995, according to a Feb. 9 letter to supervisors from Richard A. Popper, chairman of the county Audit Committee.
"The commission appears to have no focus or sense of mission and has accomplished little over the past several years," Popper wrote, in recommending that it be disbanded.
Supervisors Yvonne Brathwaite Burke, Gloria Molina and Zev Yaroslavsky voted to disband. Supervisors Michael D. Antonovich, a longtime commission supporter, and Don Knabe voted against getting rid of the panel.
