Can a Football Stadium Be 'Environmentally Friendly?'

Hosted by

The developer AEG is demanding special relief from state environmental procedures as a condition for building an NFL stadium in downtown LA. It would still have to complete an environmental impact report, and challenges could still be filed in court. But AEG wants to speed up the procedure. The stadium hasn’t been fully approved, but AEG wants action now, before this year’s legislative session ends on Friday.
