Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that would enable the developer behind a $1.2 billion plan to build a football stadium in downtown Los Angeles to move forward while avoiding long court battles, Huffington Post reports.

Brown signed the bill at a Los Angeles Convention Center ceremony with executives from Anschutz Entertainment Group, the developer of a proposed 72,000-seat stadium next door.

Calling the move a way to create jobs now, Brown said, "We're going to protect the environment. But there are too many damn regulations. I've got some power now. Let's cut the barriers and regulations and move ahead."

Brown said the stadium, to be called Farmer's Field, would create 12,000 construction jobs and 11,000 permanent jobs.

"This is the way we get people working," he said.

The bill would expedite legal challenges, sending enviromental impact legislation directly to the state's cour of appeals, enabling the company to avoid protracted -- and expensive -- court battles. Decisions would have to be made withing 175 days.

The developer in turn promised to build a 'green stadium' and make it public transit friendly.
