How far along is AEG on stadium project?

Good question. The L.A. Planning Department has been waiting five months for documents from Anschutz Entertainment Group on the proposed facility. So far, nothing. From the OC Register:

Under the EIR process, companies and their consultants must provide studies and other research on a wide range of environmental areas dictated by city officials. Once the EIR is complete, it must be approved by city officials before it is released. Following its release the report is subject to public comment which must be addressed by the company before final approval. [Hadar Plafkin, the Los Angeles Planning Department's environmental review coordinator], said most projects begin filing documents and data with the city shortly after filing a notice of preparation (NOP) with the city. While AEG officials repeatedly have said the project has a tight deadline in order for the stadium to open in time for the 2016 NFL season, Plafkin said his department won't be rushed. "We decide when an EIR will be adequate," Plafkin said. "And it won't release it until we feel it's adequate."

City Councilwoman Jan Perry got into the potential economic benefits of a new stadium on KPCC's Patt Morrison show.
