A press release from Assemblymember Isadore Hall, who sponsored the bill for the new NFL stadium, (which made it through without undergoing a new environmental review impact report) says it will be signed tomorrow at the following address: "Site of future NFL stadium, City of Industry, Highway 60, Grand Avenue Exit, Intersection of Grand Avenue and Baker Parkway." The event gets underway at 9:00 AM. And if you missed yesterday's Los Angles Times story on the utter weirdness of the political structure (and business practices) of the city of Industry, it's required reading. UPDATE: The bill was signed this morning.
