A proposal to prevent repeats of the Bell scandal — in which city officials secretly granted themselves salaries of up to $800,000 — hung in limbo Monday, jeopardized by an unrelated dispute between two Southern California lawmakers. The measure, which would require many government officials in California to publicly disclose their compensation and perks, unanimously passed the state Senate in the morning. But it's unclear whether the measure will be taken up this year in the lower house.

SACRAMENTO - Republican state Senators on Monday blocked a bill that would require more disclosure of those who contribute money through nonprofit groups to affect California elections, the first legislative setback for Democrats since they lost their supermajority two weeks ago. With all Republicans either voting against the bill or withholding a vote, the tally was 26 to 4, one vote short of the two-thirds majority to approve SB 27 as an urgency...

State Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) has introduced a bill to legalize Internet poker in California, but opponents are betting the controversial proposal won't be acted on in the coming three weeks before the Legislature adjourns for the year. Correa took a placeholder bill, SB 678, and amended it Monday to allow state-sanctioned online poker games for Californians to be operated by card clubs or Native American tribes that run casinos. “These amendments are the product of ongoing discussions with a broad coalition of California Indian gaming and non-gaming tribes who have participated in an inclusive and transparent process over the past several months,” Correa said in a statement.

SACRAMENTO -- A day after going on a leave of absence, Sen. Roderick Wright (D-Inglewood) was replaced Wednesday as the chairman of the Senate Governmental Organization Committee by Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana). Wright was removed as chairman after a jury last month found him guilty of eight felonies including voter fraud and perjury for lying when he signed forms indicating that he lived in his Senate district when he ran for office. On Wednesday, the Senate Rules Committee appointed Correa to head the committee overseeing gambling and liquor laws.

I'd like to thank Jeri Elster ("The Devil You Know," by Melba Newsome, Jan. 27) for persevering within a justice system that has been functioning in the Dark Ages while alienating and discriminating against women, their bodies and sexual crimes. With her painful story, Elster has opened the door for changes in legislation that can bring justice sooner rather than later for victims of sexual crimes.

Re: "Nativo Lopez's Successor Is Sworn In," Feb. 12: Your story made mention of a letter released by state Assemblyman Lou Correa (D-Anaheim) requesting an investigation by the state attorney general's office and Orange County district attorney's office into allegations by Santa Ana Unified Supt. Al Mijares regarding supposed ethical violations committed by board members John Palacio and me in our "dealings with district contractors." Surely you remember the Mijares letter timed for the expected political effect two days before the recall election?

The headline on Agustin Gurza's March 30 column claiming that I am an "Anti-Gay Activist . . . Dancing to the Wrong Beat" is a good example of dancing around the truth. When Gurza interviewed me, I emphasized repeatedly that I have no problem with gay Americans doing what they please in their private lives. However I and many others in my community must draw the line when the gay lobby decides it wants to force a "gay curriculum" on our children in our public schools (Assembly Bill 222 and Senate Bill 1260)

QUITO, Ecuador - Ecuador's incumbent president, Rafael Correa, swept to an easy reelection victory Sunday, winning 58% of the vote according to a preliminary official sampling - an overwhelming margin that entitles him to a third term without having a runoff. The 49-year-old leftist economist easily outdistanced his closest finishers, banker Guillermo Lasso with 24%, former President Lucio Gutierrez with 6%, and banana exporter Alvaro Noboa with 4%, according to a snap count released by the national electoral commission.

SACRAMENTO - Imagine a lawmaker being allowed to read a proposed law before voting on it. For that matter - and this seems like a stretch - try to envision the public being offered an opportunity to express its view on a bill before legislators vote. Granted, this is a radical concept - at least during the final secretive, skulking days of a legislative session. We're talking usually late summer, although legislative sleight-of-hand can occur anytime, including the dead of winter.

Four large, recent canvases by Mario Correa, which he collectively dubs "The Muslins," are as much prints as they are paintings. Weirdly, they also add some photographic elements into the unexpected mix. At Redling Fine Art, one horizontal and three vertical canvases -- all unstretched and hanging loosely -- are held to the walls by simple nails pounded into the upper corners. That construction metaphor continues in the imagery, which is framed along the frayed muslin edges by straight-edge lines of ink that recall chalk snap-lines.

For much of Tuesday night, Chivas USA appeared to take its quarterfinal matchup in the U.S. Open Cup for what it was — a glorified exhibition game. Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy sat. Other key players joined him for long stretches. It was Chivas' fourth game in 10 days. Fatigue was bound to play a role. And early, it did. By halftime, Chivas had failed to capitalized on nine shots against the Charlotte Eagles of the USL Pro league — the third tier of the North American soccer pyramid.

Texas Rangers pitcher Edwin Correa says his desire to stay with the team may waver if he is not allowed to observe his religion's Sabbath. Ranger Manager Bobby Valentine excused Correa, a Seventh Day Adventist, from 5 p.m. Friday to 5 p.m. Saturday last season in respect for the pitcher's religious beliefs. But Valentine may ask Correa to agree to a compromise in the arrangement during the 1988 season, his third in professional baseball.

Ecuador's president, Rafael Correa, is weighing whether to grant WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's request for political asylum. The Australian-born Assange, who is fighting extradition to Sweden to face sexual-assault allegations, is holed up in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. Whatever the fiery populist president decides, this is a bizarre story because Correa has shown little tolerance for freedom of expression in Ecuador. He's engaged in a war of words with the media, conjuring up archaic libel laws to go after newspaper owners and a columnist he disagreed with.

Chivas USA Coach Robin Fraser said he used the recent three-week break in the Major Soccer League schedule to "focus on the minor details that we need to improve on. " Apparently scoring goals wasn't among them. Either that or Fraser's lessons didn't take because Chivas proved just as punchless Saturday as it did before the break, losing, 3-0, to Real Salt Lake before an announced crowd of 13,816 at the Home Depot Center. How bad was it? Real Salt Lake 'keeper Nick Rimando had to make just three saves — and only one of those required him to move.
