REDSKINS STADIUM SAGA TAKES YET ANOTHER TURN
Published October 25, 1995
"Hoping to revive the stalled talks" over a new Redskins stadium in suburban MD, Gov. Parris Glendening said yesterday Prince George's County Council Chair Anne MacKinnon would offer a $20M incentive plan to lure the team, according to today's WASHINGTON POST. Glendening said MacKinnon "had enough votes" to pass the plan. MacKinnon later "expressed confidence but was less definite than the governor," saying she's still working on building council consensus. Prince George's County Exec Wayne Curry, however, said "as far as he knew," the talks were "in the same place." Curry: "That's just people talking. The council can't act on whims." MacKinnon agreed that her plan was a "concession" to Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke (WASHINGTON POST, 10/24). In Baltimore, Morgan & Langfitt report that Glendening also said the state and county "have agreed to pay all" of the estimated $73M for infrastructure costs related to the stadium (Baltimore SUN, 10/24).
