SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC RADIO noncommercial Talk KPCC/PASADENA-LOS ANGELES has assigned Special Correspondent KITTY FELDE to WASHINGTON to open the station's own WASHINGTON bureau.
"The CALIFORNIA delegation, in general -— and the SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA delegation, specifically -— is too important and too powerful to settle for pool or wire service coverage," said SCPR President BILL DAVIS. "At a time when Congress will debate and vote on legislation that's critical to the SOUTHLAND - —the financial and automotive industry bail-outs, immigration legislation, re-writing No Child Left Behind, environmental legislation, and union card-check proposals-— it's critical for voters in the region to know how powerful legislators in our delegation work to shape and pass (or defeat) specific bills."
