Gov. Gray Davis' proposal to have the state pay for most of the cost of a high-speed busway across the San Fernando Valley has put increased pressure on the area's leadership to reach a consensus on the project. Davis' plan, which still faces a tough battle in the Legislature, would increase the state's share of the $291-million east-west busway's cost to $245 million from $145 million.

The City Council voted Tuesday to endorse Gov. Gray Davis' $5.2-billion transportation initiative, saying it would provide funding for important projects throughout the city. Davis' proposal has already started to garner opposition in the Legislature and among some local agencies. Los Angeles officials were outvoted last week when the plan was opposed by the regional council of the Southern California Assn. of Governments.

A Metropolitan Transportation Authority panel approved a plan Monday that calls for construction of a San Fernando Valley rail line to begin by 2007, but it left unanswered the question of how the project will be funded. The project could have been delayed until 2011 under a so-called recovery plan drafted by MTA at the behest of federal authorities, concerned that the agency's rail construction program is underfunded and too ambitious.

City Councilwoman Laura Chick and former Assemblyman Richard Katz called Thursday for an audit of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to determine if the agency has given the San Fernando Valley its share of rail funding. In particular, the two Valley lawmakers want to make sure that the MTA has complied with a 1984 law written by former state Sen. Alan Robbins that requires the MTA to spend 15% of all local rail money in the Valley or set it aside in a trust fund.

Led by angry San Fernando Valley lawmakers, the Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to freeze $200 million in contributions to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority because of proposed delays to a long-sought Valley rail line. The 9-2 vote--following nearly an hour of often-emotional debate--blocks the payments until city and MTA officials rewrite a regional "recovery plan" to move up the start of construction of the east-west line across the Valley.
