Opposition in the Maryland legislature to the new Redskins stadium deal is "high and support may come at a cost," according to John Mercurio of the WASHINGTON TIMES. House Majority Leader John Hurson: "Right now, the votes are not there." MD Gov. Parris Glendening, who met with Montgomery County lawmakers on Tuesday, is expected to meet with other statewide delegations. The Legislature would need to approve the spending of $23M from a state fund to build roads and parking around the planned 70,000- seat Redskins facility in Landover (WASHINGTON TIMES, 12/7).
