Plan advances for stadium that could bring NFL team to LA

LOS ANGELES — A proposal to build an 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles suburbs that could become the home of an NFL team has taken a step forward.

Los Angeles County election officials said Thursday they have verified enough petition signatures to allow the plan to go before voters in Inglewood, where the stadium would be built.

That vote could come in June.

A development group that includes a company controlled by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke announced plans to build the stadium last month.

The proposal envisions a stadium rising on the site of a former horse track. It raises the possibility again that Los Angeles could get an NFL team after a two-decade drought.

If voters approve, stadium construction could begin in about a year.
