Your story on a state Assembly panel's rejection of mandatory earthquake insurance for Californians (April 14) makes it obvious that Assemblywoman Paula L. Boland (R-Granada Hills) has mastered the art of reelection by being perfectly unclear, as her statement regarding her "no" vote on the legislation attests: "As good as this bill sounds, I also support a federal program." Also ? Doesn't also imply that she voted for the state-run insurance program, when in fact she voted against it?

"Lawmaker's Bills Would Have Benefited His Firm" (Feb. 15) does an enormous disservice to Assemblyman Keith Richman (R-Granada Hills), who has provided exemplary leadership in efforts to reform HMO abuses. The California Medical Assn., which is sponsoring AB 1600, and Speaker Pro Tem Fred Keeley (D-Santa Cruz), who introduced the bill, asked Richman, the only physician in the California Legislature, to coauthor the bill precisely because of his background in this complex subject. Who better to address the unfairness of HMO contracts than Richman, who has been on the front lines battling the HMOs for his patients?

"School District May Soon See a Rush for the Exits" (Nov. 11), though otherwise informative on efforts to break up L.A. Unified, gave the unfortunate impression that the typical breakup group is in a race to be first, so as to beat the Jan. 1 deadline of state Sen. Tom Hayden's (D-Santa Monica) bill, and thus win "spoils" of segregation or a wealthy tax base. This is certainly not the case in the San Fernando Valley, the largest geographical area seeking breakup. I have worked extensively with VALUE (Valley Advocates for Local Unified Education)

About the Aug. 15 story, "Diamond Lanes To Be Added to Simi Freeway," I cannot believe that Assemblywoman Paula Boland (R-Granada Hills) stated, "It is unfair to deny some people access to the freeway" on diamond lanes. Doesn't Mrs. Boland understand that diamond lanes do not deny people access to the freeway? The purpose of diamond lanes is to deny solo drivers access to that particular lane, not the freeway as a whole. Mrs. Boland also voted against the new law mandating that all motorcyclists wear helmets, demonstrating her ignorance of transportation and safety issues.

A controversial bill that would make it easier for the San Fernando Valley to secede from the city of Los Angeles sailed through a key Assembly committee Wednesday. The measure passed by a 5-0 vote of the Assembly Local Government Committee after testimony in Sacramento from the bill's sponsor, Assemblywoman Paula Boland (R-Granada Hills), that Los Angeles is too big, too unwieldy and too far-removed from the Valley to adequately represent the area.
