LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The city council has voted to advance AEG’s proposal for an NFL stadium in downtown Los Angeles.

A private consulting firm hired by the city estimated that the project would cost as much as $3 billion.

KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschiutta reports.

The site of the privately-financed stadium would be the Los Angeles Convention Center’s west hall, next to Staples Center.

    OK taxpayers of L.A. county, get ready to bend over again.

    1. NFL hopeful says:

      don’t you read, it’s not going to cost tax payers anything !!!!! AEG is picking up the tab and will pay in bonds to cover Los Angeles Convention Center’s removal
      and restoring it elsewhere. This will create over 6000 jobs and generate over a million dollars in revenue for Los Angeles

        We shall see. If the $pic Mayor has anything to do with this, were in trouble. We don’t need another area for Dodger/Raider/Soccer types to gather and start trouble.

  2. noneoff says:

    Someone must have been paid off to make such a foolish decision. Once the current city council is gone, and this stupid project costs the L.A. tax payers a fortune, who can we seek revenge on?

  3. Ron Senger says:

    For those of you that don’t think the taxpayers are paying for this…

    All of the improvements around the project are being built by the taxpayers first, so that when the Environmental Impact Report comes out there will be nothing left for AEG to do….see new offramp under construction on the 110 at 9th street.
