Gov. George Deukmejian acknowledged Thursday that he may have been misinformed when he allowed the state to risk $15 million in general fund money on an unsecured loan toward construction of an Olympic training center in San Diego. Deukmejian said at a news conference that he was assured by the San Diego foundation receiving the money that it would fully secure the loan as part of its contract with the state--an agreement the governor said was still being negotiated.

The upper house, by a 28-4 vote, on Thursday sent SB 1403 by Sen. William Campbell (R-Hacienda Heights) to the Assembly. The measure would authorize the payment of $15 million to the San Diego National Sports Training Foundation over three years, if the foundation raises an equal amount.
