About 420 officers from 17 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies fanned out across Sacramento County on Wednesday, searching for more than 330 suspected gang members in what officials said was the largest such sweep ever in the region. By nightfall, they had made more than 50 arrests on suspicion of parole, weapons or drug violations, and had seized more than 20 guns along with pounds of marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine.

Sacramento County has adopted one of the most aggressive affordable-housing policies in the nation, requiring developers to set aside 15% of all construction in unincorporated areas for low-income residents. The policy, adopted by county supervisors Wednesday and set to take effect next month over developers' objections, is expected to provide about 300 affordable houses and apartments a year in the fast-growing and increasingly expensive region.

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors reversed itself this week and voted to offer domestic partnership benefits to the county's 14,000 employees. The 3-2 decision Tuesday came when Supervisor Muriel Johnson announced a change of heart after hearing stories of county employees who faced hardships because their partners did not have insurance. Previously, a majority of supervisors had opposed the move, citing potential increased costs and opposition to recognizing same-sex unions.
