Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) on Wednesday announced plans to take up legislation to regulate low-flying helicopters above residential neighborhoods in Los Angeles County, saying voluntary controls for the "persistent fly-overs” were clearly insufficient. The announcement comes amid longstanding complaints from residents, particularly in the San Fernando Valley, of low-flying police and news helicopters intruding on their suburban soundtracks. Some news stations voluntarily curtailed the number and hours of helicopter flights during the second Carmageddon event on the 405 Freeway after fielding numerous complaints from residents and calls for restraint from L.A. officials.

MICHAEL D. ANTONOVICH Our county's new Gold Line rail system is successfully playing a vital role in the realization of our county's regional transit plan. However, a ballot measure by Gov. Gray Davis to raise the sales tax by a half-cent for the budget-busting subway threatens this plan. The Gold Line can be expanded by utilizing existing freeway medians and abandoned railroad rights-of-way for a comprehensive at-grade and aboveground rail system.
