LOS ANGELES - Lobbyists for Los Angeles County are working against state legislation that would ease environmental and planning regulations to make way for a proposed 75,000-seat professional football stadium in the city of Industry.
Supervisor Gloria Molina said Tuesday that developers might seek a change in state law to exempt the planning, construction and operation of the proposed stadium and entertainment complex from the California Environment Quality Act.
The board voted 3-1 to order its lobbyists in Sacramento to oppose any environmental waivers for the US$800-million project. Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas opposed the motion and Supervisor Michael Antonovich was absent.
Billionaire Ed Roski's Majestic Realty Co. wants to develop the 592-acre project.
No team has agreed to play at the proposed stadium yet.

Organizations: Majestic Realty Co.

Geographic location: Los Angeles County, California, NFL stadium Sacramento US

    These fat cat developers have gotten enough from local government. They get there way , abuse the environment and walk away to there penthouse far away from the projects they develop. No: to any concessions to the greedy developers.
