The Orange County Transportation Authority's board on Monday adopted a $602-million budget that includes the elimination of 72 jobs. The budget for fiscal 1995-96 is balanced and includes funding to complete construction of the interchange of the Santa Ana and Costa Mesa freeways and the widening of the northbound Santa Ana Freeway in Anaheim. The $239-million cost of the widening accounts for more than one-third of the budget.

The civic cohesion so evident after earthquakes, fires, floods and riots has begun to surface in the wake of the 5-day-old MTA strike. So has opportunism and indifference. People unaffected by the strike--some acting from generosity, others from self-interest--are reaching out to coworkers and employees, trying to ease these times that try their soles.

A bill that would keep transit workers' wages and benefits intact--but could also kill a proposed separate San Fernando Valley transportation district--cleared a final state Senate vote Thursday and is now headed to Gov. Gray Davis. Davis vetoed a nearly identical bill last year, angering labor unions who backed the legislation to protect workers at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority from possible competition. The Senate bill, SB 1101, by state Sen.

An investment group headed by former Baseball Commissioner Peter V. Ueberroth said Thursday that it would buy strikebound and bankrupt Eastern Airlines in a deal valued at $463.9 million.

A survey to see if pay at the Transportation Corridor Agencies is commensurate with pay at other organizations has been approved by Orange County tollway officials. Salary ranges at the tollway agency have not changed since 1992, when the last compensation survey was done. Officials said a new study, which will cost $24,000, is necessary because the agency is reorganizing positions to focus more on finance and operations and less on planning and construction.

A walkout stalled trains, buses and subways in Spain on Thursday as transportation workers pressed demands for higher wages and improved working conditions. The state railway ran only a skeleton service on the first day of a three-day strike that coincided with a one-day stoppage by public transport employees in Madrid, Barcelona and several other cities.

The acting chief of the chronically troubled Metropolitan Transportation Authority told board members Thursday that meeting Washington's latest demands for greater fiscal responsibility almost certainly will delay completion of the Eastside, Pasadena and Mid-City rail lines for at least three years, and postpone starts on long-promised lines through the San Fernando Valley and Crenshaw district indefinitely.

Los Angeles County Transportation Commission employees generally make more money than their peers at the Rapid Transit District, a disparity that may complicate the planned merger of the two, a study concludes. The RTD study discovered that fully one-third of the Transportation Commission's workers are eligible to make $80,000 or more, a far higher percentage than at any other public agency in the county.
