Today’s Headlines

9:20 AM PDT on September 8, 2011

Featured Headlines: If you just read the news yesterday morning, you might think there was a tidal wave brewing against the Downtown Stadium proposal and AEG's lobbying effort to have the CEQA Law bended to prevent lengthy legal challenges to the environmental review.  LA Weekly published a particularly powerful take down of the Stadium and the legislative proposal.  The Daily News also takes issue with the legislation.
Regardless, by the end of the day the Assembly had passed legislation that did just that in exchange for the promise that the now-difficult-to-challenge environmental documents show that Farmer's Field will have more people arrive to the stadium by transit than any other football stadium in the country.  L.A. and the legislature is either getting bamboozled, or we're going to see a heck of a transportation plan.  I hope it's the latter.  I suspect it's the former.
