FOOTBALL EXPECTED TO BE FOCUS OF SENATE HEARING TOMORROW
Published November 28, 1995
The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Antitrust, Business Rights and Competition takes up the issue of franchise relocation in a hearing tomorrow at 10am EST. Scheduled to testify: Members of OH's congressional delegation, NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, Maryland Stadium Authority Chair John Moag, Houston Mayor Bob Lanier, Cleveland Mayor Michael White, and a panel of professors (THE DAILY). WHAT TO EXPECT: The NFL seeks a "limited antitrust exemption that would give it protection from a suit if it blocks a franchise shift" (Gary Myers, N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 11/28). Lanier "is expected to testify that competition between cities ultimately drives up the cost to local taxpayers blackmailed into building new venues" (John Williams, HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 11/28). White said Congress "needs to understand the far-and-away unique circumstances in Cleveland" (WASHINGTON TIMES, 11/28).
