The eight-bill ethics package jointly proposed by the Fair Political Practices Commission and Ted Lempert, the young Democratic assemblyman from San Mateo (Part I, Feb. 23), is a welcome reform plan that Southern Californians should endorse. The FPPC figures on gifts and honorariums collected by the Legislature are overwhelming--$3.2 million worth of gifts and honorariums for 120 legislators in just three years--and only underscore the importance of the ethics bills Lempert and the FPPC are trying to enact.

Gov. Pete Wilson, whose messages explaining his reasons for vetoing bills are much lengthier than those of his predecessors, fell out of character when he vetoed a proposal by Assemblyman Ted Lempert (D-San Mateo). The bill would have required the state voters pamphlet to note whether a proposition was put on the ballot by the Legislature or by initiative, creating an additional printing cost of about $110,000. "It's not worth it," Wilson said.

Political infighting and opposition from the oil industry are choking prospects for a comprehensive oil-spill prevention and cleanup bill in our state capitol. State Assemblyman Ted Lempert (D-San Mateo) has crafted an excellent bill (AB 2603) to prevent oil spills, provide tougher fines for polluters, and fund clean-up operations along our coast in the case of an accident. But his proposal is hung up in the state Senate, where senators refuse to support AB 2603 because they have already voted on an oil spill bill written by Senate leader Barry Keene (D-Benicia)

State Sen. Gary K. Hart (D-Santa Barbara) said he and a Northern California assemblyman introduced companion bills this week to repeal a new law that allows county governments to charge school districts for collecting the schools' share of property taxes.

Gov. Pete Wilson on Thursday signed into law a bill expanding California's charter school program. As a result, a planned November ballot initiative on the issue will be shelved. The bill the governor signed will increase the number of charter schools--which operate semi-independently within a public district--that can be started each year. Wilson, a strong supporter of charter schools, signed the bill by Assemblyman Ted Lempert (D-San Carlos) at such a school in Lempert's district.
