DOME IN NORTH HOUSTON CALLED "IMPOSSIBLE"
Published September 28, 1994
TX state Rep. Kevin Brady said it is "impossible" for Montgomery County to subsidize a domed stadium for Oilers owner Bud Adams. Brady claims that county officials "have known for four months that they lack the financial firepower" to build on the site north of Houston, but continued to give the "impression they could build" such a facility because they want Montgomery County to be seen as a regional business leader. Brady: "It is just that the numbers are impossible. That is why the rest of us didn't jump on it." News that Rockets Owner Leslie Alexander did not want to move his team to Montgomery County also hurt the project (John Williams, HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 9/27).
