'Cal Expo Bill' Passes Senate, Awaits Governor's Signature

Word just came from the Capitol that Senate Bill 282 -- the legislation which would allow Cal Expo a wider range of motion in redeveloping the grounds, including possibly building an NBA arena -- passed by a 40-0 vote. (Thanks to Sen. Dave Cox's office for the updates.) The governor has until October 14 to sign or veto the bill.

This is really the first step for the Cal Expo plan. The NBA isn't even allowed to negotiate with Cal Expo yet; the Cal Expo governing board is expected to approve the start of negotiation in two weeks. But as I said this morning, this bill is very important in grand scheme -- without it, Cal Expo would have a tough time making something happen. With it, given that the governor signs the bill, things come somewhat easier. Not easy. But easier.
