Gov. Gray Davis is proposing to spend $100 million in a new effort to combat pollution from sewage spills and storm drains that resulted in 5,000 beach closures and warnings about contamination in 1999, administration officials said Thursday. Parts of Newport Beach had 256 closures or posted warnings in 1999, officials said. Huntington Beach had 158, and portions of Santa Monica Beach had 62.
