A controversial proposal to ban smokers from Sunnyvale's city payroll was rejected by a narrow margin because of concerns over invasion of privacy and discrimination. The City Council voted 4 to 3 against the proposal, which is similar to a Massachusetts law. Under the Massachusetts law, police officers and firefighters face dismissal if they smoke--even off the job. Union officials and tobacco activists promised a court challenge when and if the new law is first enforced.

A new law passed unanimously by the Sunnyvale City Council establishes strict regulations for users of toxic gases. Supporters called it a model ordinance for communities where semiconductor chips are manufactured. The law--designed to avoid a major release of toxic gases during an earthquake, fire or accident--requires firms to have 24-hour monitoring, seismic shut-off valves and storage facilities, and piping to control gases in the event of a leak.

Embarrassed city officials in Sunnyvale promised to purge from city resolution an anti-Japanese ordinance that was adopted during the hysteria of World War II. The 44-year-old resolution states that it is the official policy of Sunnyvale, now a bustling city in the heart of the high-tech "Silicon Valley," to distrust the Japanese and "permanently exclude them from the state of California."
