LOS ANGELES — The proposed National Football League stadium in downtown Los Angeles took a leap forward Tuesday when California Gov. Jerry Brown signed two bills to streamline environmental review for key construction projects.

Project boosters say building the 68,000-seat stadium — to be named Farmers Field — is expected to generate more than 10,000 jobs, bringing in an estimated $40 million a year to the city, county and state. Stadium developer AEG claims its design will be the most environmentally-friendly stadium in the nation.
