New Version Of California Bill Would Help Build Sacramento Arena
California state Senate President Pro-Tem Darrell Steinberg is "pushing forward with a bulked-up alternative" environmental reform bill that "includes provisions to assist in development of Sacramento's downtown arena." Steinberg, "following last-minute negotiations" with Gov. Jerry Brown, shelved the previous version of the bill last night in favor of the new one. Steinberg said the move, coming a day before the end of the legislative session, will "strengthen efforts" to help the Sacramento arena (SACRAMENTO BEE, 9/12).
