PATRIOTS ADVERSARY FINNERAN OFFERS REVISED STADIUM BILL
Published November 17, 1997
In an "unexpected turn of events," MA House Speaker Thomas Finneran Friday unveiled a revised bill for helping the Patriots rebuild Foxboro Stadium that calls for the state to spend $52M to improve infrastructure around the facility in return for $2M in annual parking fees, according to Tina Cassidy of the BOSTON GLOBE. Finneran, on Patriots Owner Robert Kraft: "He can take it or leave it." But in the revised bill, a plan for the state to pay Kraft $20M for land surrounding the stadium was eliminated. The MA House could vote on the plan this week. The team said it would review the bill before commenting (BOSTON GLOBE, 11/15).
