NASHVILLE VOTES TO HEAD TO THE POLLS ON MAY 7 ON OILERS
Published March 21, 1996
The Metro Nashville Election Commission has set a referendum for May 7 to determine if voters want to issue bonds to pay for the city's $149M share of the Oilers relocation deal. State and local officials have already approved the $292M deal that would have the team play in a new stadium in '98. But Nashville Mayor Phil Bredesen has said if the referendum fails, "local efforts to attract the Oilers will stop," and the team will have to find a new city or return to the Astrodome (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 3/21).
