The California Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a 1988 San Diego County ballot measure that levied a half-cent sales tax to build courts and jails, throwing into confusion $330 million already collected and threatening public-works projects around the state. Orange County officials were among those sent reeling by the decision. Some feared it could derail the county's transportation tax, approved by voters in 1990 and projected to deliver $3.2 billion for highway and transit projects.

Three state legislators are pushing a plan to allow Orange and three other counties to build and operate a new international airport somewhere in Southern California, possibly at Camp Pendleton. Sen. Marian Bergeson (R-Newport Beach) and Assemblyman Ross Johnson (R-La Habra) will co-author a bill with Assemblyman Steve Peace (D-La Mesa) to allow Orange, San Diego, Riverside and Imperial counties to join in a special regional agency to build the airport.
