Cow Palace bill mooooves forward

Some “language issues” that had hogtied the bill to save the iconic Cow Palace have been cleared up and the legislation is back on schedule.

Senate Bill 1527, by State Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Mateo-San Francisco, would convert the 67-year-old arena’s adjacent 13-acre overflow parking lot into a grocery store and other amenities. The arena itself would be saved. The bill will head for the full state Senate as early as Thursday after passing the Senate Appropriations Committee on a 12-2 vote Monday. It needs to clear both the state Senate and Assembly before Aug. 31.

Yee spokesman Adam Keigwin said language issues had stopped the bill for about six weeks.
