STADIUM ISSUE NOT GREETED RECEPTIVELY AT BOSTON HEARING
Published October 3, 1995
With an October 13 deadline to produce a bill, the MA House Ways and Means Committee held a "field hearing" last night in South Boston on the megaplex. Phil Primack of the BOSTON HERALD notes that while both crowd size and intensity "were down by a half," the message was the same as in the summer -- "no way." Boston City Council President James Kelly: "A stand-alone convention center is something that people across the board can live with. What we cannot live with is a baseball park, and a football stadium would be equally disastrous." Representatives from the Patriots and Red Sox were not present, though they had appeared before the committee last week. The next "field hearing" is scheduled for next week in Roxbury (BOSTON HERALD, 10/3).
