Governor signs bill prohibiting sale of O.C. fairgrounds

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Monday prohibiting the sale of the Orange County Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa.

"I thank the governor for his support for my bill, which deletes the provisions of state law exposing the property to a potential sale," Assemblyman Tom Daly (D-Anaheim) said in a statement Monday. "The Fair & Event Center is a source of pride and enjoyment for people across Orange County, and this ensures it will remain the special place that it is."
