Corrections Secretary Jeffrey Beard says the 100 inmates who remained on the hunger strike have begun accepting prison-issued meals.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The fate of Northern California's two NBA franchises — or at least their ability to fast-track construction of new arenas — is in the hands of state lawmakers. As the Legislature approaches the end of its annual session, bills supporting expedited arenas for the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings are generating intense backroom political lobbying. The Democratic lawmakers who make up the Bay Area delegation are battling over the Warriors bill, with East Bay lawmakers wanting to keep the team in Oakland while their counterparts across the bay seek a new waterfront arena in San Francisco. In the state capital, the Senate leader promised the NBA that a new downtown arena for the Kings would not be held hostage by California's stringent environmental laws, which allow multiple avenues for lawsuits.
