A bill to overhaul the South Coast Air Quality Management District board and give it broad new authority to clean up the air--including power to ban big trucks from freeways during rush hours--ran into a wall of opposition during its first hearing in the state Senate. An industry group, Los Angeles city and county officials, and Southern California Edison Co. oppose the measure. It is backed by environmental groups.

A big rig lumbering at daybreak out of a San Bernardino truck yard with a million-dollar load of cigarettes is swarmed by at least three armed bandits. They jump on the running boards, smash the windows and douse the driver's face with pepper spray. Within seconds, they handcuff the driver and his passenger, then rumble down the road.

A big rig pulls out of a central warehouse in Irwindale, carrying a load destined for an Ace Hardware store. It looks like an ordinary truck. But a quick inspection of the exhaust pipe shows how different it really is. No black puffs of smoke, no smelly fumes. Instead of diesel, it burns liquefied natural gas. Built for Ace Hardware two years ago, it was the first heavy-duty natural-gas truck in California, and among the first in the nation.
