Alarmed at the proliferation of the signs, a group of state lawmakers from Los Angeles on Friday proposed a two-year moratorium on electronic billboards in the state. The proposal comes a month after L.A.

When French President Jacques Chirac addressed a joint session of Congress Thursday, many congressional Democrats had other plans--including all three Democrats from the San Fernando Valley area. Reps. Anthony C. Beilenson of Woodland Hills, Howard L. Berman of Panorama City and Henry A. Waxman of Los Angeles all missed the speech. In fact, only about 30 of the House's 197 Democrats attended Chirac's address, with many of the no-shows boycotting out of anger over French nuclear testing.

Faced with a $1.2-billion budget deficit that threatens to trigger deep cuts in county services, some of the most powerful local officials in the state spent a remarkable day roaming the halls of the Legislature in a desperate search for dollars.

State Sen. Herschel Rosenthal, a Democrat who has represented a mostly Westside district for two decades, announced Monday that he will run this spring for the Van Nuys-based Senate seat now held by David Roberti. Rosenthal's decision was quickly endorsed by a long list of elected officials, including Roberti himself, but also damned as a galling example of political imperialism by others who cited the senator's lack of experience in the Valley.

When Republicans took control of the House of Representatives last month, the last-quarter political bang empowered two San Fernando Valley congressmen, with one upstart lawmaker winning far more than his veteran cross-town colleague. Surprising political analysts, seniority seemed to fall by the wayside when Rep. Howard P. (Buck) McKeon (R-Santa Clarita), relatively new to the Congress, emerged with as much clout as the dean of the state's Republican delegation, Rep. Carlos J.

Representatives of East Los Angeles declared Thursday that they want higher priority in potential subway funding for their districts than they won the day before in an acrimonious MTA board debate that appeared to leave San Fernando Valley rail plans in jeopardy. Although pleased that the board voted to seek $44 million to help extend the subway deeper into the Eastside, three members of Congress said that the area deserves to be ahead of the Valley and Westside in subway funding requests.

Restrictions on bullet sales were tightened in some cities but loosened in one in 1995. Some local lawmakers joined forces with school officials, approving laws that crack down on students who skip school. A sampling of laws enacted in 1995: Los Angeles Alarms--Hoping to reduce the number of false alarms that police must answer, an $80 fine will be levied against owners of security alarm systems that generate more than four false alarms in a 12-month period.

In some ways, Phil Schiliro's job is similar to that of a congressman: He runs a legislative office. He helps craft legislation. He stands in for his boss, Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Los Angeles), at meetings all over Capitol Hill. Yet deep down inside, Waxman's chief of staff has sometimes wished for an additional responsibility that even his accommodating boss can't grant him--the right to vote on the floor of the House.
