This morning, State Senator Darrell Steinberg of Sacramento said he will be introducing a bill on Wednesday that would effectively prohibit a California city from signing a contract with a professional sports team unless that team has paid off all its debts to the other city.READ MORE: Hit-And-Run Crash Closes Streets In Tracy
