Despite the "desire" of some Harris County official to reimburse Astros owner Drayton McLane and his Astrodome USA company for nearly $500,000 in emergency repairs to the county- owned Astrodome, the County Attorney's Office may block the payments. The county's lawyers believe it may be illegal to reimburse Astrodome USA because of the county's purchasing requirements which require the county to put repairs on public facilities up for bid. The repairs were made before this year's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HOUSTON CHRONICLE)....A bill in the MA legislature that will call for a private bidding process for construction of a new convention facility in Boston is expected to clear the House next week and legislative leaders are hopeful to have something on the governor's desk by November 15. The bill will probably not designate a particular site. And the issue of whether a domed stadium will be part of the facility "may be left open" (BOSTON HERALD, 10/13).
