Published February 16, 1996
The WASHINGTON TIMES reviews the "rallying" efforts of MD Gov. Parris Glendening over the past two weeks to build public support for new Baltimore franchise and Redskins stadiums. Despite state polls showing opposition to the projects, John Mercurio reports there is "definitely a mood swing" and a "new enthusiasm" for the proposals in the MD Legislature (WASHINGTON TIMES, 2/16)....A group which opposes the two deals has gathered under the label, Citizens for Legitimate Investment Priorities (WASHINGTON TIMES, 2/16)....Prince George's County officials have introduced a measure to create a $37M sports complex and park to be located next to the proposed Redskins stadium. Owner Jack Kent Cooke has offered to contribute $3M toward the project (Terry Neal, WASHINGTON POST, 2/16).
