              The IN House passed legislation Tuesday that would
         "give the public or a group of private investors a chance to
         buy" professional sports teams should they try to leave
         after receiving public subsidies.  Both the Colts and Pacers
         said they will continue to oppose the bill while the
         legislation now goes to the State Senate.  IN Gov. Frank
         O'Bannon has yet to take a position on the legislation
         (STAR-NEWS, 2/5)....A bill introduced in the CO Senate asks

         stadium ends up to be, "eliminating the team's obligation to
         pay for any cost overruns."  It also removes the $180M cap
         on the taxpayers contribution approved two years ago.  The
         bill would also call for a May vote (ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS,
         2/4)....A first-round game of soccer's Gold Cup between

         Raleigh arena running $3M over budget and "several months"

         earmarked in the deal (NEWS & OBSERVER, 2/5).
