LOS ANGELES (AP) - A spokesman for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says he's expected to sign an environmental exemption bill allowing the construction of a 75,000-seat pro football stadium just east of Los Angeles.

State senators this week approved the bill, which would nullify a lawsuit over the project's environmental impact report by citizens in neighboring Walnut.

Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear says the governor supports the stadium proposal for the city of Industry because it will generate jobs.

But McLear says the governor hopes developer Majestic Realty Co. doesn't poach any California teams to play in the proposed venue.

Majestic has said the San Diego Chargers, the Oakland Raiders and the San Francisco 49ers are on its list of seven teams it plans to approach about a move to the Los Angeles area.
