GLENDENING STEPS UP PRESSURE; SKINS VOTE LIKELY

     In an attempt to sway public opinion in favor of new stadium
for the Browns and Redskins, MD Gov. Parris Glendening has
"launched a campaign-like offensive" with his Cabinet, party and
the Maryland Stadium Authority.  According to this morning's
WASHINGTON POST, Glendening says the "media blitz" is needed to
"overcome misinformation" about stadium plans.  To promote the
plans, the governor and top aides have began "hitting radio and
TV talk shows with arguments that the stadiums will generate
substantially more money than they will cost" (Charles Babington,
WASHINGTON POST, 2/6).  The Greater Baltimore Committee has hired
a pro-stadium lobbyist (Baltimore SUN, 2/6).
     REDSKINS VOTE TODAY:  The Prince George's County Council
"could give the green light today" to a MD stadium for the
Redskins.  Anti-stadium attorney Stan Brown said he would file
for a preliminary injunction against the project before the end
of the week if the Council passes the resolution (Gary Scheets,
WASHINGTON TIMES, 2/6).
