MARYLAND LEGISLATORS DIFFER OVER STADIUMS
Published February 5, 1996
In the "double stadium debate" in MD, Baltimore legislators support spending $273M in state funds to build stadiums for the Browns and Redskins "with few exceptions," while there is stark opposition in Prince George's County, proposed home to the new Redskins Stadium (Baltimore SUN, 2/4). Meanwhile, a SUN editorial implores legislators to approve both deals: "Instead of bickering over fiscal analysis, they should zero in on reasons why so many cities clamor for the right to become home to an [NFL] team -- it marks the town as first class" (Baltimore SUN, 2/4).
