A TRI-STATE REGIONAL STADIUM AUTHORITY PROPOSED FOR CINCY

     Regional leaders said a sports stadium in downtown
Cincinnati cannot be built without the cooperation and tax
dollars of OH, KY & IN.  Members of the tristate task force
deciding how to build the stadium "voted unanimously to pursue an
interstate compact" among counties in all three states.  If
approved by legislators in each state and Congress, the pact
would create a developmental agency to cross "political
jurisdictions and raise money for the stadium, as well as
oversee, own and manage it."  The agency would also create a
"regional tool to pursue high speed rail and enhanced airport
development."  Jim Duance, Exec Dir of the OH-KY-IN Regional
Council of Governments: "It would not be just another piece of
government, but it could act as a safety net to undertake
projects which cannot be pursued by one or few units of local
government now because they are too expensive or too impractical"
(Richard Green, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 10/14).
