GEORGIA DOME SUBMITS PROPOSAL FOR DISABLED

     The Georgia Dome has submitted a proposal to the U.S.
Justice Dept. in response to new handicap access requirements
under the '91 Americans with Disabilities Act and "to complaints
that handicapped seating in the Dome is inadequate."  If it is
accepted, "about 320 prime seats" held by longtime Falcons season
ticket-holders "could be lost to disabled football fans."
Currently, designated seats for the disabled are in "the last row
of certain areas of the lower level and in various locations in
the club level."  Falcons Dir of Ticket Ops Jack Ragsdale:
"We've told them [season ticket-holders] we will move them to the
most comparable seats that are available.  We've had a couple of
calls with people not too happy about it" (Susan Laccetti,
ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/1).
