Proposed Clippers Arena Could Skirt Some Environmental Laws Los Angeles Clippers

A bill that would exempt a proposed Los Angeles Clippers arena in Inglewood from parts of California’s environmental laws was introduced Friday by an area legislator.
Assemblywoman Sydney Kamlager-Dove, D-Los Angeles, said the bill would give the basketball arena the same assist that new arenas in Sacramento and the Bay Area have received.
The proposed Clippers arena would allow the team to move out of Staples Center, which it shares with the Los Angeles Lakers and Kings. The arena — details of which are still being negotiated with the city — would be built with private funds on mostly vacant land owned by the city of Inglewood, under a flight path used by hundreds of aircraft daily.
The new arena would be just south of the under-construction football stadium that will house the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers and the entertainment district of restaurants and bars that will accompany it.
