MTA BOARD EXTENDS 'CONTINUING BUDGET RESOLUTION' FOR 30 DAYS; SERVICE AND PROJECT FUNDING ON-GOING

 LOS ANGELES, July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The MTA board of directors voted Wednesday to extend for another 30 days a "continuing budget resolution" to give new members an opportunity to study the MTA's proposed $3.7 billion FY 1993-94 budget.
 On-going projects and all MTA bus and train operations will continue at their current levels through Aug. 27, said Franklin E. White, MTA chief executive officer. The next full MTA board meeting is scheduled for Aug. 25.
 "It is very important when we are dealing with such important matters as the future of transportation in Los Angeles that all members of the board feel comfortable with their decisions," said MTA Chairman Richard Alatorre. "It is only fair to give our new members time to study the details of the budget and the ramifications of various budget options."
 Joining the board as principal members this month were Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan and his appointees, Stan Sanders and Mel Wilson. Their alternates are Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky, Councilwoman Ruth Galanter and Councilman Hal Bernson.
