Why does our own Rep. Jane Harman (D--Marina del Rey) oppose a vote on cutting federal waste? Specifically, she opposed "A to Z," a promising pending proposal to convene a special session of Congress during which any Representative could propose cuts in any federal program, subject to a roll-call vote. Why? She has even sought to prevent a floor vote on "A to Z" by keeping the bill lodged in committee.

The Army Corps of Engineers has approved $750,000 for the emergency dredging of channels blocking access to Marina del Rey harbor, officials announced. The funding complements $500,000 allocated for dredging as part of the 1997 Energy and Water Appropriations Act, the law that funds Corps projects. "The powerful storms of recent weeks have nearly closed both the northern and southern channel access to the Marina del Rey harbor," said Rep. Jane Harman (D-Torrance).

I had to read to the very end of "Hospitals to Get $150-Million Infusion" (Feb. 5) to learn about the real effect of this federal money on our county health system. "The present deal does not solve costly structural problems within the health department, and [director of the county Department of Health Services Dr. Thomas] Garthwaite said L.A. County may have to look anew for cuts in a couple of years." U.S. Rep. Jane Harman (D-Venice) calls the agreement "a long-awaited step forward."
