LOS ANGELES - The California Senate has voted to allow developers of a proposed 75,000-seat football stadium in the Southern California city of Industry an environmental exemption that allows construction to move forward.
If signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the bill that was approved Wednesday on a 21-14 vote, would nullify a lawsuit by residents in the neighbouring city of Walnut, who claimed that Industry approved the project without sufficiently reviewing its environmental impact.
Officials with developer Majestic Realty Co. have said that they would begin approaching NFL teams about moving to the area when the current season ends.

Organizations: California Senate, Majestic Realty Co., NFL

Geographic location: Southern California stadium, LOS ANGELES
