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).
