ANOTHER EXEMPTION: In California, David Goll noted California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger Sunday signed a bill into law that exempts the 49ers from "getting competitive bids on their proposed Santa Clara stadium," allowing the team to bypass Santa Clara's "requirement of a competitive bid requirement on construction projects." Santa Clara City Council members have "already given their blessing to" the 68,500-seat stadium, but it "must still be approved by a majority vote of Santa Clara residents" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 10/13).
