COUNCIL APPROVES FAST TRACK LEGISLATION FOR REDSKINS STADIUM

     The Prince George's County Council last night approved three
measures to speed the review of Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke's
request to build a new stadium in Landover, (WRC-Channel 4).  The
three measures will do the following: 1) Amend zoning laws to
create a reduced 70-day stadium review process;  2) Exempt the
Redskins from the "adequate public facilities" test, which
requires that projects not severely burden such public service as
roads; and 3) Call for the extension of water and sewer service
to the proposed Wilson Farm site (John Mercurio, WASHINGTON
TIMES, 9/6).
