(Best Syndication News) - The Los Angeles Dodgers have filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, which will allow the baseball team owners to deal with immediate finances. In a statement, Dodger owner, Frank McCourt, mentioned Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig as the reason the team had to file for chapter 11.

Selig did not approve a media transaction between the Los Angeles Dodgers and FOX network, which was a multibillion-dollar media rights transaction. If the MLB Commissioner approved of this, the Dodgers would have had access to hundreds of millions of dollars. The office of the MLB Commissioner rejected the proposed deal. The Dodgers have been trying for almost a year to get Selig to approve the media deal.

McKeon tells Best Syndication that the act is “fundamental to aiding in job creation and retention as it addresses the needs of the employer and the employee by seeking to adequately prepare job-seekers with the skills they need to succeed in an ever-changing job market.”

“Having over 14 million Americans currently unemployed and nearly 12% California unemployment has America in an extremely vulnerable position, which is why I consider the reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act to be so pressing”, McKeon said.

“I’m amazed at the speed and quality of the work here”, Assemblyman Paul Cook (R-Yucca Valley) tells Best Syndication. “Thinking back, the damage to the roadway in December was enormous.”
