News updates on new Sacramento basketball arena
 
California's political watchdog agency filed a lawsuit on Thursday seeking to force a Los Angeles law firm to identify who paid signature gatherers trying to force a public vote on Sacramento's arena subsidy.

The Fair Political Practices Commission's suit against Loeb & Loeb charged that the high-powered firm has "failed and refused" to report the source of the money, despite warnings that it had violated the Political Reform Act by failing to meet a state financial disclosure deadline.

Eight local legislators joined Friday to back a bill to shield Sacramento's downtown arena plan from lengthy litigation that could cause the building to miss a tight, NBA-imposed deadline for opening.

The 11th-hour effort, championed by Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, would speed up the judicial process for handling environmental lawsuits, limit the courts' ability to stop construction, and add mediation to the mix.

Steinberg, who promised the league in New York this spring he'd help shepherd the arena project through the state's often lengthy environmental process, said the bill keeps the arena on a fast track to open in 2016.
