The Los Angeles County Commission on Obscenity and Pornography was saved from extinction when the Board of Supervisors voted to extend its life for two more years. Supervisor Mike Antonovich had vowed to save the obscure 15-member group after the county's Audit Department recommended that the group be disbanded because of its lack of activity.

The Los Angeles County Commission on Obscenity and Pornography--which had no staff, no budget and no regular meeting schedule--was disbanded Tuesday after 37 years by the county Board of Supervisors. The 15-member commission was established in 1964, though in recent months its roster had dwindled to six. It had met only once since 1995, according to a Feb. 9 letter to supervisors from Richard A. Popper, chairman of the county Audit Committee.

Supervisor Mike Antonovich has vowed to try to save the Los Angeles County Commission on Obscenity and Pornography--a group committed to the campaign against smut--which faces elimination in a scheduled vote today. The Board of Supervisors may dissolve the 53-year-old commission, whose 15 members it appoints, as part of the county's cost-cutting measures, even though the group has received no public funding for the past several years.

In his three years as a member of the Los Angeles County Commission on Obscenity and Pornography, Michael B. Bennett has never been to a meeting. His excuse: The panel hasn't met. The commission was established in 1964, the same year that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, when pressed to define hard-core pornography, said, "I know it when I see it." Since then, the pornography industry--centered in the San Fernando Valley--has grown steadily, now with about $4 billion in sales annually.
