As she puffs on a long brown cigarette during an interview in her Baldwin Park condominium, Assemblywoman Sally Tanner confides that in the next legislative session she hopes to tackle the problem of indoor pollution. No, she is not about to give up smoking, or vote to ban tobacco on the floor of the Assembly. Instead, Tanner explains, she is talking about the toxic fumes that accumulate in houses and offices from building materials and other sources.

In the old days, powerful lawyers and business tycoons pulled strings from their Spring Street offices and watched legislators in faraway Sacramento dance like marionettes. A phone call from Spring Street to the state's most famous lobbyist, Artie Samish, was all it took to pass a bill or kill one. The old fixers are all gone from downtown Los Angeles, part of a distant past when Spring Street was Los Angeles' financial and political heart.

While Sen. Joseph B. Montoya sits in a courtroom, charged with political corruption, at least two fellow Democrats are eyeing his seat in the Senate. Assemblyman Charles M. Calderon (D-Whittier) will run against Montoya "whether he's acquitted or not" in federal court, sources close to Calderon said Wednesday. Calderon, 39, would not comment on reports he will challenge Montoya. However, the lawmaker acknowledged that, if Montoya steps aside, he will campaign for the 26th Senate District seat.

Assemblywoman Sally Tanner (D-El Monte) is trying to get legislators and congressmen representing the San Gabriel Valley to unite in opposing any plan that would force residents to pay for cleaning up polluted ground water.
