Black caucus doesn't like Coliseum-USC deal

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- The California Legislature's black caucus doesn't like parts of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum deal with the University of Southern California.

The nine caucus members are in favor of USC management of the stadium but they object to inclusion of area parking lots.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/WQCLnp) says the caucus wants the parking lots turned into South Los Angeles parks.

USC's Trojan football team plays games at the Coliseum and the university demanded the parking lots as part of the management agreement.

The California Science Center owns the parking lots and the land on which the Coliseum and several museums sit. It's collectively known as Exposition Park.

The caucus told center board chairman Robert Stein in a letter that giving up control of the parking lots gives away control of the park. The caucus says that's totally unacceptable.
