Dirt Lot Watch

At a House hearing on Friday, Central Valley Congressmember Jeff Denham continued his fevered crusade against a new federal courthouse for Downtown LA. The General Service Administration's most recent plan calls for two buildings on a weedy lot at First and Broadway (the old courthouse is overcrowded and poses security issues), to be partially funded by a private developer--Denham called that proposal a "sham." Meanwhile, the GSA says it plans to start work on the smaller of the new buildings this year but will spend a while hashing out the plan for the second. [LAT]
