Producer to sit on California Coastal Commission
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - A well-known Los Angeles television producer and environmental activist has been appointed to the California Coastal Commission, the agency that regulates development along the state's 1,100 miles of coastline.
Dayna Bochco and her husband Steven Bochco run a production company, which has produced such famed shows such as "LA Law" and "Hill Street Blues." She has also been involved with the Heal the Bay organization and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
Dayna Bochco will replace Sara Wan, who has served on the commission for 15 years.
The 12-member panel is selected by the governor, the state Senate Rules Committee and the speaker of the Assembly and is made up of six elected officials and six members of the public.
