LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles City Council has voted to create a special committee tasked with reviewing issues related to a downtown NFL stadium proposed by sports and entertainment company AEG.

The officials voted unanimously Wednesday to form the ad hoc panel made up of council members.

The committee is separate from the stadium working group of city staffers approved by council members last week. The mayor has also convened a commission of business leaders to evaluate the proposal.

Council President Eric Garcetti said at the hearing that the panel would make sure the 64,000-seat stadium, which would be built on city-owned convention center property, is a good deal for taxpayers.
