Faced with overwhelming industry opposition, an Assembly committee on Tuesday shelved a sweeping proposal to phase out large-scale use of hydrogen fluoride, an industrial chemical that can be hazardous to health when accidentally released. The legislation, by Assemblyman Curtis Tucker Jr. (D-Inglewood), would have forced oil refiners--which use the acid to manufacture unleaded gasoline--and other businesses to switch to safer substitutes, relocate to rural areas or shut down operations.

A water testing program has found pools of petroleum products beneath almost all of the refineries in Los Angeles County, state officials said Tuesday. The most serious finding, the officials said, was the discovery of a layer of petroleum products as much as 25 feet thick at a depth of 75 feet below the Mobil refinery in Torrance. It has almost certainly seeped beneath adjacent residential areas, the officials said.
