Lt. Gov. Leo T. McCarthy and state Sen. Diane Watson said Saturday they will introduce a resolution that would put California in the forefront of efforts to overturn the federal rule that prompted last week's U.S. Supreme Court decision banning abortion counseling in federally funded clinics. "Our resolution . . . will send a strong message to the President: The state with 52 electoral votes opposes the gag rule and supports women's right to privacy, women's right to choose," McCarthy said.

Like the lonely and lovelorn who face New Year's Eve without a date or a party invitation, California finds itself on yet another June 30 — fiscal New Year's Eve — without a budget. The Legislature was required to adopt one two weeks ago and the governor is mandated to sign it Thursday, but the Legislature hasn't called and the governor didn't even send a card. Fine. We've been here before, year after year. We'll wake up tomorrow with no hangover, no parade, no bowl games, no confetti in our hair, just cranky and bitter.

When the chips were down, most of Assemblyman Gil Ferguson's Republican colleagues from Orange County disappeared or refused to vote on his highly publicized resolution justifying the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. And Ferguson (R-Newport Beach) said Wednesday he felt particularly abandoned when fellow conservatives failed to even grant him a simple parliamentary courtesy that would have allowed him to rebut a litany of critics during the highly unusual debate.

A resolution urging California to recognize the flag of the former South Vietnam and permit it to be flown over state property during Vietnamese-American events cleared a key legislative hurdle Wednesday. On a 5-0 vote, the state Senate Rules Committee approved the largely symbolic measure after an emotional 90-minute debate. "There was such a clear sentiment that people wanted to have the ideals of freedom and democracy represented in that way," said Sen.

Davis adopted a resolution declaring the University of California community a "pro-choice city" after a three-hour City Council debate attended by about 500 people. "The resolution is a political act to support women's choice to choose their own morality. . . . I know that will alienate people, but that's the way I see it," Mayor Michael Corbett said. He was joined by two council members.

When the Queen of England declared 1992 an " annus horribilus ," she also might have been describing one of the worst years in the otherwise golden history of California. The Golden State used to escape the bruising budget woes, mean-spirited politics and paralyzing public strikes that have at times made life miserable in other states. No longer.

Angst , an unusual malady for the Golden State, has touched the California psyche. Economic signals point to a lingering recession. The state is expected to have a harder time than the rest of the nation in shaking free of economic malaise. Never before has the need been more pressing, to put it colloquially, for the state to get its economic development and competitiveness act together. Never before has the need for leadership been so great.

The Laguna Beach City Council voted Tuesday night to delay for two months a decision on a proposed ordinance that would declare the city a nuclear-free zone. The sponsor of the proposal, council member Lida Campbell Lenney, asked for the extension after three other members said they would oppose the ordinance if a vote were taken Tuesday night. Lenney said she wants the time to provide the other council members "with more information than they've been given."

Entering the political fray over attempts to make English the state's official language, the Garvey School District's board of trustees has passed a strongly worded resolution denouncing these efforts as ineffective, divisive and dangerous. The resolution, which the board approved by a 4-1 vote, urged defeat of an "official English" initiative measure on the November ballot, arguing that the measure would "not help anyone to learn English, nor will it improve community relations.
