Both areas could be helped significantly by a variety of tax incentives. Construction and rehabilitation of residential, commercial and industrial properties would certainly benefit from new federal and state income tax credits and faster depreciation write-off.

Los Angeles City Council travels may delay action on two controversial issues--expansion of the Sunshine Canyon Landfill and a new ordinance restricting street banners. The landfill issue is on Tuesday's agenda for a final vote, but City Councilwomen Ruth Galanter and Rita Walters, who were part of the majority in a 9-5 initial vote supporting the expansion, are out of the country and will not be present Tuesday. Galanter is traveling on city airport business to Hong Kong and Australia.
