State Legislature Approves New Kings Arena
The fight to build a new arena for the Sacramento Kings is now in the hands of Gov. Jerry Brown, as the Legislature on Thursday night approved a bill to streamline development of a downtown arena for the pro basketball team.
The California Senate voted 32-5 in favor of Senate Bill 743, written by Sacramento Democrat Darrell Steinberg.
“The NBA has said… if we don’t meet this timeline, if we don’t get this project started in 2014, we’re at risk of losing it,” Steinberg said. “The opponents are still out there.”
