Beilenson was defending both President Clinton's embattled economic stimulus program and himself one recent night. And performing a delicate balancing act to boot. "It's not so much stimulus, it's, as I tried to suggest, investment, " the bespectacled Woodland Hills Democrat said as he stood in shirt sleeves in the Westlake Hills elementary school.

Assemblywoman Hannah-Beth Jackson and Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks said Tuesday they believe the Rocketdyne Santa Susana Field Laboratory is the likely source of a toxin found in 17 wells in Simi Valley and one near Ahmanson Ranch. After a public hearing on the issue Monday, Jackson and Parks said all available information points to the mountaintop field lab above Simi Valley as the source of the perchlorate contamination. Perchlorate is a highly toxic chemical used in rocket fuel.

Bolstered by greater clout this year, Ventura County's state Capitol delegation is pushing a lengthy wish list ranging from crime-busting bills to requests for aid to rebuild storm-ravaged seashore bike paths. The three Assembly members and two state senators as a whole are better positioned this year on the Legislature's policy committees--with local lawmakers now holding key leadership slots on panels dealing with crime, taxes, higher education and toxic cleanup.

Legislation releasing Ventura County and other smoggy areas in California from a court-ordered federal air cleanup plan was en route to President Clinton's desk Friday, a victory for local leaders who warned that the tough regulations threatened to "send a wrecking ball" through the state's faltering economy.

Thousand Oaks and Camarillo are supporting a proposed four-year public university in Ventura County. But they aren't so positive about the state's plan to pay for it. Those two cities became the latest to support the concept of a university, which would be called Cal State University Channel Islands. A number of other cities have either passed resolutions of support or scheduled votes in the coming weeks. Thousand Oaks gave its blessing Tuesday night, and Camarillo matched that ante Wednesday.

The U.S. Department of Energy said this week it is proposing to slash more than $3 million from its upcoming budget for cleanup operations at the federal government's former nuclear testing facility near Simi Valley. Environmentalists worry that if the reduction is approved by Congress it could mean soil, water supplies and research buildings contaminated during four decades of nuclear testing at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory would remain at the site.
