An appellate court ruling upholding a 1988 San Diego sales tax for jails could finally present Orange County leaders with a way to pay for badly needed facilities here, county officials said Wednesday. "This could be very important to us," Supervisor Thomas F. Riley said. "I think this opens up an opportunity for Orange County to deal with this very important problem."

During a recent radio talk show discussion of the many growth-control measures that will appear on San Diego city and county ballots next month, several callers expressed confusion about the various proposals. Is it Proposition H that places the sharpest restrictions on new housing construction or is it Proposition J? Would Proposition B or Proposition D require local votes on all important land-use decisions?

Orange County slow-growth proponents conceded defeat Tuesday as their far-reaching measure was being rejected by voters opposed to the idea of linking future growth in unincorporated areas to the ability to provide additional public services to new developments. "There's no question we're going to lose," said a disappointed Tom Rogers, co-founder of the group that sponsored the initiative.

Having invested $400 million in refurbishing the aging Rancho Seco nuclear power plant, metropolitan Sacramento voters narrowly rejected a proposal to abandon the plant and decided instead to see exactly what their money bought. By a margin of 50.4% to 49.6%, voters defeated Measure B, which would have closed the troubled but recently refurbished plant. Rather, it will continue to operate for an 18-month trial period, as outlined in rival Measure C, which was favored by 51.
