The California State Assembly voted today to approve AB 1907, legislation by Assemblymember Tom Daly (D – Anaheim) to prevent the sale of the Orange County Fair & Event Center property.

AB 1907 eliminates a pair of provisions in state law authorizing the sale of the property. That authority has existed since 2009, when the State Legislature agreed to support a proposal by then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to sell the fairgrounds, along with several other sites, as part of an effort to close a $42 billion state budget deficit during the Great Recession.
