Good morning from Hillcrest.

Lots of news on tap for this morning.

  • Let’s dive in with a plan that has some local officials and state representatives concerned. The state Assembly passed a bill yesterday that would clear the way for a new NFL football stadium in the city of Industry in Los Angeles County. Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, R-San Diego, registered various< /a> objections throughout the day as did San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders. Neither wants a new stadium to lure away the Chargers.
  • The San Diego District Attorney, the San Diego Police Department, the local U.S. Attorney’s Office and the Internal Revenue Service were among the litany of agencies at a press conference yesterday morning to announce the results of Wednesday’s county-wide marijuana sting at 14 outlets. Here’s coverage by the U-T, CityBeat, NCT and KPBS. I’ll be following with some more today.
  • I did circle back on a few stories yesterday. The Convention Center Corp. admits more errors on a document used to promote expansion and here’s an analysis on whether bidding out some of the city’s information technology services is part of its controversial outsourcing plan.
  • In other news around the county, a new partner and statewide nonprofit investigative outfit, California Watch, tells the story of a local company bankrupted despite winning millions in homeland security contracts. And the city of Encinitas won a lawsuit that could clear the way for a sports park on 44 acres of city-owned land.
  • In opinion news, the U-T says the city should give up luxury boxes at Qualcomm Stadium and Petco Park.
