Over objections from its own advisors, the board of the state's largest public pension system decided to invest $100 million in a Texas-based partnership after being lobbied by a former board member and a powerful state senator. The investment, approved in a closed-door session, was extraordinary in several respects. The involvement of both an ex-board member and a lawmaker may be unprecedented. The board rarely overrides its staff and consultants.

Prospective home buyers in California now must be notified that they can access a state data base to determine if sex offenders live nearby, under an enhanced Megan's Law signed by Gov.

Throughout the investigation of the Rodney King beating there has criticism regarding a lack of response from Latino elected officials. Some said Latino officials were avoiding the issue as if the problem of police brutality only existed between the Police Department and the African-American community. That is not true. We in the Latino community have always been aware that the LAPD is no more immune from the diseases of discrimination and abuse than any other institution in this state.

Kevin Starr's "L.A. Universities Can Help Heal the City" (Opinion, Nov. 21) was right on point. Since 1996, the Latino Legislative Caucus has held annual retreats at University of California campuses to discuss research, forecasts and the latest thinking in key policy areas. Some of the issues we have focused on include economic trends and forecasts, developing a master plan for California's children, health care and the working poor, early childhood development and literacy. The insights gained in these lectures, round tables and briefings prepare Latino caucus members to better scrutinize legislation with a broader understanding of the issues.

If you can't beat the regulators on the local level, there's always one final fallback position: Get the Legislature to do it for you. That is the course being pursued by Sen. Richard G. Polanco (D-Los Angeles) in behalf of gardener groups that rely heavily on noisy leaf blowers to clean lawns and such. Sponsors, including the Assn. of Latin American Gardeners of Los Angeles, say the idea behind Polanco's SB 1651 is to pressure industry to develop quieter blowers.
