A federal environmental report analyzing the effects of a proposed 500-megawatt hydroelectric plant near Lake Elsinore gave local officials insufficient information, the Board of Supervisors declared by vote Tuesday. The board urged the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which prepared the document, to further investigate the 2,400-acre project's effect on transportation, water quality, views and recreation, including hang gliding in the Santa Ana Mountains.

The Riverside County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to crack down on illegal immigrants by allowing sheriff's deputies to screen jail inmates to determine their immigration status, a policy already in place in two neighboring counties. Under the new program, specially trained deputies will identify illegal immigrants when they are booked in county jail and release them to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for deportation when their sentences are complete.

The Riverside County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to delay responding to a scathing grand jury report on a county-run animal shelter until the facility's staff provides a detailed reply to all 28 criticisms. Supervisor Bob Buster, who sits on the shelter's advisory board, told the shelter's executive director, Janis McLaughlin, that a draft submitted by shelter staff included some "very flip responses," and demanded further explanation of shelter practices.

The Riverside County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to create a tribal council task force to strengthen ties between county and Native American leaders. The board voted 5 to 0 after praising the proposal by board Chairman John V. Tavaglione, saying the move will formalize relationships between the county and various tribes and will help avoid the conflicts seen in other parts of the state. "When people or groups are backed into a corner, they have to fight," Tavaglione said.
