A bill that would create a third statewide election in California next year gained momentum Wednesday in the Senate amid charges that the cost -- $30 million to $60 million -- would be wastefully high. The proposal calls for splitting the regular March primary. In March, voters would cast ballots only in presidential races. A second primary, in June, would be for state and local candidates and issues. The general election runoff in November would remain.

Agreement in the Capitol can be a scarce commodity: Republicans and Democrats no longer even concur on whether and how to mark Father's Day. Members of the California Legislature -- divided over spending, taxes and the state economy -- spent 15 minutes Thursday debating a resolution "urging all Americans to express their gratitude for the many contributions made by our fathers."

When Assemblyman John Longville met San Bernardino City Councilwoman Susan Lien at her 1998 inauguration, he just assumed she was one of them -- a conservative. After all, Republican lawmakers lord over San Bernardino County politics. And Longville, a Vietnam War protester who dropped out of college to join Sen. Eugene McCarthy's presidential campaign in 1968, is one of the county's most liberal politicians. But he soon learned that she was a kindred spirit.

The Southern California Assn. of Governments (SCAG) is daunted by the fact that Prop. 156, the $1 billion rail bond measure, was defeated in the November election. It is a serious blow for continuing the financing of rail transit systems in the state and especially in our region. Prop. 156, if it had received the voters' approval, would have meant that cities like Los Angeles would have benefited because a considerable amount of the bond money would pay for expanded rail lines. Times staff writer Mark Stein, writing in his post-election article on the defeated rail transit measure (Nov.

He is right in stating that transportation planning does shape growth and has an impact on the environment, economic and housing development, growth management and how local communities make decisions on social policy. We at the Southern California Assn. of Governments (SCAG), as a metropolitan planning organization (MPO), are responsible for coordinating city and county regional planning in air quality conformity, mobility, housing needs, growth management, water quality and hazardous-waste management.

Rather than complex bailouts or irritating rate hikes, there's a simpler way to ease California's energy crisis, says a state senator from Long Beach. The clock. Democrat Betty Karnette introduced a resolution Monday asking Congress to give California the option of remaining on daylight saving time all year instead of turning back clocks in the fall. Californians would have an hour more of sunlight a day and would use less energy around peak hours, which fall about 6 p.m., Karnette said.

They used to call it "working at home." Now it's "telecommuting," the idea of people putting in at least part of their work week at home or at some convenient work center closer to home than their regular office. The concept still is in the pilot-project stage for many companies and government agencies, but most such experiments are demonstrating that the advantages of telecommuting outweigh the drawbacks.

By an incredible vote of 61 to 2, the state Assembly has passed a bill that would impose on California one of the very worst features of Florida election law--one that helped mess up the last presidential election so badly. It's up to the state Senate now to kill this measure and make certain it remains killed.

Gray Davis is long gone from the Capitol, but the weapon responsible for his political annihilation still unnerves Democratic lawmakers, who are trying to make it harder to recall state officials. Last week, the Senate's elections committee unanimously approved legislation that would prohibit recall proceedings against any statewide official within 90 days of election.
