NFL stadium bills cut to the front of the line
by Mike Terrizzi and John Corcoran
Football fans in both Southern and Northern California were given something to cheer about when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed two bills to make it easier for developers to build a pair of NFL stadiums. Fans of the game who are also concerned about preventing potential abuse of environmental and competitive bidding law should be careful what they wish for.
The first bill, ABX381 by Assemblyman Isadore Hall, D-Compton, exempts developers of an NFL stadium project in the City of Industry (Los Angeles County) from the legal requirements of a thorough environmental impact report.
