It's either special-interest legislation or just good policy. Whichever, what is clear is that a little-noticed bill pending in the state Senate would have a major effect on a proposed $84-million Westwood Village development that has pitted residents and a developer in a long, bitter conflict over the fate of a project along bustling Glendon Avenue. The bill, sponsored by state Assembly Transportation Committee Chairman Kevin Murray (D-Los Angeles), amends state law governing pedestrian malls.

In an effort to quell the controversy over a plan to fund mass transportation, a Los Angeles city councilman proposed a new commuter rail line Friday for the San Fernando Valley, while a state lawmaker called for express busways to serve the inner city.

In a roomful of egos, Democrat Kevin Murray of Los Angeles can still create his own kind of sizzle on the floor of the California Assembly, even as the oratory ends and the mood turns social.
