STADIUM NOTES

          In Minneapolis, the City Council's Intergovernmental
     Relations Committee approved a resolution backing Mayor
     Sharon Sayles Belton's proposal to offer city, county and
     Park Board land by the Mississippi River to the state for
     the proposed Twins ballpark. The proposal now goes to the
     full council.  Meanwhile, organizers of a petition drive to
     amend the Minneapolis City Charter said that they were close
     to getting the necessary signatures to place an amendment --
     requiring a referendum on public financing of $10M or more
     for athletic stadiums -- on the November ballot (STAR
     TRIBUNE, 8/6)....In Houston, the Harris County Commissioners
     Court approved an amendment expanding a regional sports
     authority from 11 to 13 members.  The City Council "is
     expected" to give its OK today (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 8/6).
