For the record

Malibu septic proposal: A map in the Sept. 21 LATExtra section accompanying an article about the state water board’s vote on a proposed septic system prohibition for a portion of Malibu showed incorrect boundaries for the area that would be affected. It failed to reflect a revision made in November by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board, which moved the western boundary to Pacific Coast Highway and Malibu Canyon Road from a line farther north and west. The change meant that the affected area was smaller than the erroneous map indicated; the corrected map appears above.

Judicial logjam: An Aug. 31 article and chart in Section A about judicial vacancies said that the 47% rate of confirmation of President Obama’s nominations to the federal judiciary compared with 87% for President George W. Bush during his first 18 months in office. The 87% rate was for Bush’s entire eight-year presidency; for Bush’s first 18 months, the rate of confirmation was 61%. Additionally, the confirmation rates given for Presidents Clinton (84%), George H.W. Bush (79%) and Reagan (93%) were for their full presidencies and not their first 18 months.

Phu Nguyen: An article in the Sept. 23 LATExtra section about Phu Nguyen, a candidate for the California Assembly, said he was running for a seat in the 47th Assembly District. In fact, Nguyen is seeking a seat in the 68th District.
