Gov. Pete Wilson signed into law late Wednesday a bill written by an Irvine lawmaker that will return $3 million to two school districts that were hard hit by the 1994 county bankruptcy. Under SB 421, written by state Sen. Ross Johnson (R-Irvine), Newport-Mesa Unified will receive $1.65 million and the South Orange County Community District will gain $1.3 million. "These monies clearly belong to the districts, but were caught in the county's bankruptcy," Johnson said.

The district, comprising Irvine Valley College and Saddleback College, voted 5-2 last week to cancel the 14-year-old program. "Spain has abandoned our fighting men and women, withdrawing their support," said trustee Tom Fuentes, who spearheaded the move to cancel the trips.
