Henry Cisneros, secretary of housing and urban development, says that it was necessary to spend $1 million on a bias test to find out if banks are not granting loans to people who are from different ethnic groups. Why does this seem like such a waste? Somebody needs to stop and think about how banks make money. Mortgage and lending offices are there to make money, not to make ethnic conflict.

Contrary to what was written by Don Schultz ("Jet Noise Can Mute Jobs Plea," Times Valley Edition, Letters to the Editor, Nov. 15), Van Nuys Airport's new economic impact study was not conducted to counter recent noise complaints received by the airport. This project was awarded to an independent consultant in March, 1992, to discover how the economic impact of Van Nuys Airport has changed since the last study was completed in 1987. Economic impact studies, like the one done for Van Nuys Airport, are commissioned by airports throughout the United States using methodology approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The Boston-based insurer that has provided legal malpractice protection for 6,500 members of the Los Angeles County Bar Assn. for the last three years is withdrawing as the program's lead insurer as of Oct. 1, sending the legal community scrambling to find a replacement.

A decision on building an aviation museum as part of the redevelopment of about 90 acres of the Van Nuys Airport was delayed Wednesday when the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners sent a recommendation on the issue back to its consultant for additional study.

A proposed anti-noise ordinance for Van Nuys Airport is generating high-decibel complaints from the Federal Aviation Administration, which has already forced Los Angeles city officials to rewrite a similar noise ordinance proposed for the Los Angeles International and Ontario airports. The FAA has substantial financial clout with airport officials because it provides so much of the money for capital expenditures, like new buildings.
