Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren filed a complaint in federal court Friday saying the National Indian Gaming Commission has failed to halt slot machines in California's Indian-run casinos. "These video slot machines are being operated in flagrant violation of both federal and state law, and the state's hands are tied," Lungren said. Lungren asked the court to order the commission to cease operation of casino-style gambling. The commission, a federal regulatory agency, did not return calls seeking

Considering all the problems in our state I find it hard to believe that 65 Assembly members took valuable time to consider and vote on Assemblyman Paul Horcher's bill and put it on the governor's desk (Sacramento File, July 25). The bill requires operators of bungee jumping services to have a minimum of $500,000 in liability insurance to protect their clients against injury or death. Anyone stupid enough to jump from 200 feet above the ground attached to an elastic tether should be totally, I mean totally, responsible for the results of his actions.

AB 383, to allow civil suits in malathion spraying, sponsored by Assemblyman Mike Roos should be defeated (Sacramento File, March 24). The only thing that it will accomplish is a boon for lawyers and a worse morass for our court system. If Roos would like a sinecure for all ne'er-do-well pols of legal background, this is a perfect vehicle. Illness caused by the malathion spraying is almost impossible to prove, but the pursuit will keep attorneys in clover for years with no return for the alleged injured person.

The National Senior Citizens Law Center filed a motion in U.S. District Court in Sacramento asking Judge Edward Garcia to invalidate an agreement between state and federal officials exempting California from complying with a national nursing home reform law. The law requires increased nursing personnel, sets curbs on physical and chemical restraints of patients and gives new rights and freedom of choice to nursing home residents.

Consumers could purchase cellular telephones at significantly lower prices under legislation introduced in the Assembly. State law prohibits retailers from selling these phones at less than cost, despite the fact that merchants also receive hefty commissions from service providers when a cellular phone is activated. The bill (AB 275) by Assemblyman Lloyd Connelly (D-Sacramento) would allow part of these commissions to be considered when setting the retail price of a cellular telephone.
