HOUSTON LEGISLATOR TO INTRODUCE NEW PLAN FOR DOWNTOWN DOME

     TX State Rep. Ron Wilson said he will introduce a bill
during the coming legislative session that would mandate a city-
wide referendum on a domed stadium in Houston.  Wilson would not
say how a domed stadium would be financed, though he was adamant
that no taxes be increased to fund it.  Wilson: "For the city to
be a viable economic entity in this state and this country, we
are going to have to have a vibrant downtown.  I firmly believe
that part of that is going to be a major sports facility downtown
to attract tourists and to attract development in the downtown
area."  Wilson added that his plan for a dome will allow the city
to "completely build, own and manage" the complex (John Williams,
HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 10/12).
