  • HAWKS TAX BILL MAKES PROGRESS

         A 3% car rental tax bill to help finance infrastructure
    costs near a proposed new Hawks arena was passed by the GA
    Senate, according to this morning's ATLANTA CONSTITUTION.  The
    legislation was requested by the city as part of a $215M project
    with Turner Broadcasting to replace the Omni.  The tax is
    expected to generate $5.2M a year through 2038 (Lucy Soto,
    ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/14).

  • THE GREAT MARYLAND STADIUM SAGA NEARING AN END?

         Last night, The MD Senate "tentatively approved" $270.5M
    toward infrastructure costs for a proposed Redskins stadium and
    to build a new Baltimore stadium, according to the Baltimore SUN.
    In a "key test," the Senate "narrowly rejected" an amendment
    which would have diverted $19M from the projects to Baltimore
    school construction.  While final Senate approval is likely this
    week, the deals must still clear the MD House (Jensen & Smith,
    Baltimore SUN, 3/14).  Also, Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke has
    signed an agreement with Prince George's County and MD Gov.
    Parris Glendening, which should "clear the way" for the team to
    begin construction (Charles Babington, WASHINGTON POST, 3/14).
