State Sen. Joseph B. Montoya wanted to become a millionaire "any way he could" and once explained that he sided with land developers because "they pay more," a former aide to the senator testified Wednesday. Jerry Asher, who worked for the Whittier Democrat for more than a decade, also said Montoya once put a $2,500 price tag on his support for a bill and received free kitchen appliances from former state Republican Chairman Mike Montgomery.

Re "SUV Deaths Put Design of Seat Belts in Question," June 22: Pre-tensioners, explosives, sensors, electronics ... sounds like an expensive and failure-prone new seat belt. What's wrong with the seat belts used by infants, toddlers, adolescents in cars, as well as what aerobatic and glider pilots use (and race car drivers too)? Namely, a four- or five-point attachment system, with belts that come over each shoulder and connect to the hip belt; it requires no sensors, etc., and its purpose is to keep you in your seat at all times.

"A bombshell" in one of L.A.'s most affluent markets is how several realtors view some proposed city restrictions on new housing construction and remodeling. Councilmen Michael Woo and Zev Yaroslavsky introduced the proposals, which would, in effect, place a one-year moratorium on home building and expanding in most of Bel-Air, the Hollywood Hills and what is known as "the Beverly Hills post-office area." The idea is that after a year, tough, new building restrictions will have been adopted.

The Internal Revenue Service has plugged a loophole involving foreign ownership of real estate in the United States. Since Jan. 1, an amendment to the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act made it necessary for people buying property from foreigners to set aside 10% of the purchase price for the Internal Revenue Service. If the 10% is not withheld, buyers and brokers are liable to the IRS.
