Assemblyman Ross Johnson (R-La Habra) faces the toughest hurdle yet in his effort to convince California lawmakers, for the first time ever, to abolish a licensing agency the Legislature created. Johnson's bill to abolish the obscure Board of Fabric Care, which oversees the state's dry cleaning industry, is scheduled for a hearing today before the Senate Business and Professions Committee. That panel killed a similar effort to abolish the agency last year.

Five more airplanes would be added to the state's aerial firefighting force during the current fire season under a $1.5-million bill approved unanimously by the Legislature on Thursday and sent to Gov. George Deukmejian. A second bill to beef up the state Department of Forestry's air tanker squadron even more next year, however, was suddenly held up. With the state's most destructive fire season since 1977 only half over, Deukmejian has already indicated his support for the $1.

Assemblyman Ross Johnson, the feisty La Habra Republican who last year waged unsuccessful ballot crusades against welfare costs and political financiers, is at war these days with the state agency that licenses California's dry-cleaning industry. Johnson thinks he's "got a shot at" doing something two ex-governors, Edmund G. Brown Jr. and Ronald Reagan couldn't--abolish the 40-year-old state Board of Fabric Care.

Doug Heller is aware of their presence: the lobbyists for Edison, Dynegy, Enron, Pacific Gas & Electric and other big-energy interests. There are dozens of them; he doesn't even know how many. He passes them in hallways, sees them in hearing rooms, broods over their inscrutable faces. "No matter where you are, what time, there are always six of them huddling," he says with a trace of hyperbole. "I'm always worried, because they're strategizing, and then you see them go off to find legislators."
