FORWARD PROGRESS: In San Diego, Matthew Hall notes Brown's signature "could be a boon for plans to expand the San Diego Convention Center and build the Chargers a new football stadium in East Village." Darren Pudgil, Communications Dir for San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, said, "I'm gratified that San Diego's stadium project will be given the same considerations as L.A.'s project." Chargers Special Counsel Mark Fabiani said, "The precedent has now clearly been set to expedite major, job creating projects, and we hope to take full advantage of that precedent with our downtown stadium here in San Diego." But Hall notes despite "assurances from Chargers officials that the team wants to remain in San Diego, speculation has mounted for months that the team might eventually relocate to Los Angeles" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 9/28).
