LOS ANGELES -- A Los Angeles city councilwoman is calling for a study of the impact that a proposed downtown NFL football stadium would have on the city-owned Los Angeles Convention Center.

Janice Hahn said Tuesday that since building the proposed stadium would involve demolishing the convention center's West Hall, the impact on the center should be considered.

Hahn also says she wants a report on how a football stadium could affect ongoing prospects for privatizing the convention center.

Last month, AEG unveiled a proposal to build an NFL football stadium and events center in downtown LA at the convention center. The development company plans to lure an NFL team to Los Angeles within the next few months.
