Cal Expo Kings Arena Action "An Agreement to Keep Talking"
The Cal Expo board is set to take another step towards a new arena for the Sacramento Kings. But just how big a step is it? One board member is skeptical.

When the board that runs the state fairgrounds meets Wednesday, it’ll likely approve a letter of understanding to continue negotiations with the NBA for a new Kings Arena at Cal Expo. It’s been widely viewed as a big step forward, but Assemblyman and board member Dave Jones is more skeptical. KXJZ’s Ben Adler caught up with Jones last week at his Capitol office and started by asking him to describe the letter of understanding.
Jones says he wants to see a rigorous analysis of whether a new arena at Cal Expo makes financial sense.
