The Riverside County Board of Supervisors tentatively approved an ordinance Tuesday to restrict residential picketing to 30 feet or more from a person's property.

In a 4-1 vote -- with Supervisor Bob Buster dissenting -- the board accepted the final draft of the proposed measure, which is expected to be formally adopted next Tuesday.

"This ordinance reduces the risk of a violent confrontation and the likelihood of residents becoming captives in their own homes, where they should enjoy tranquility," said board Chairman Jeff Stone, who first proposed the measure in November.
