Unocal Corp. was fined $75,000--including $70,000 earmarked for alternative fuels research--after pleading no-contest Tuesday to charges of releasing pollutants into the air from its Wilmington refinery. It was the first time a defendant in a local air pollution case has been required to give money for scientific research. The $70,000 will be paid to the Southern California Air Quality Management District's clean fuels account, according to Los Angeles City Atty. James K. Hahn.

A Senate confirmation hearing for Cody G. Cluff, a member of the governing board of the Southern California Air Quality Management District, was postponed Monday for one week. The hearing of the Rules Committee, which had been expected to reject Cluff, an entertainment industry executive, was delayed because Sen. Ruben Ayala (D-Chino) was ill with the flu.
