After winning a hard-fought primary campaign for a state Senate seat, Assemblyman Kevin Murray (D-Los Angeles) left his victory party in his Corvette early Wednesday morning, heading with his fiancee to Restaurant Row on La Cienega Boulevard for a late-night dinner. As Murray crossed into the Beverly Hills city limits, a police officer pulled him over. "Life's little ironies," said Murray, an African American.

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. The two proposals are the latest attempts to revise a new transit funding plan adopted by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority two weeks ago to win back the federal government's support for the troubled agency.

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. Tall, broad-shouldered, the drape of his stylish suit just right, he moves through the chamber with a big-city confidence that exudes more kissy-face Hollywood--where he once worked as a talent agent--than backslapping Sacramento.
