Countywide

A bill that would provide a $3-million loan for installing emergency call boxes along freeways in San Diego County has been approved by the state Senate.

Under the bill by Sen. Bill Craven (R-Oceanside), money for the roadside telephones would be raised through a $1 temporary surcharge on vehicle registration fees. The bill now goes before Gov. George Deukmejian for his signature.
