MARYLAND UPDATE: ALL LEGISLATORS LOVE A GOOD "PORK-FEST"
Published December 6, 1995
MD Gov. Parris Glendening began his effort to win support of two new stadiums in his state, one day after announcing the Redskins' deal to move to Prince George's County. Glendening met with lawmakers on his plan to spend close to $300M on a new stadium in Baltimore and roads and parking lots to accompany the Redskins facility. In the meeting, labeled a "pork-fest" by one legislator, Glendening pledged to recommend $30-40M to schools and roads for other counties (Charles Babington, WASHINGTON POST, 12/6). A Baltimore SUN editorial calls on the Redskins to move their HQs to a site in Maryland (Baltimore SUN, 12/6).
