NEW PLANS FOR NFL CARDINALS STADIUM TO BE UNVEILED FRIDAY

          A proposed East Valley convention complex, including a 
     new domed stadium for the NFL Cardinals, "will include more
     pieces and perhaps less controversy when details are
     unveiled later this week," according to Lisa Gonderinger of
     the ARIZONA REPUBLIC.  A source who has seen the plans said
     that "enough private-sector funds have been rounded up to
     cover the football stadium."  The complex is backed by a
     group called NEXTSTEP, which will unveil the complete plans
     Friday at a meeting of the East Valley Partnership (EVP). 
     NEXTSTEP, an offshoot of the EVP, won't reveal its private
     investors until Friday, but Cardinals VP & General Counsel
     Michael Bidwill has said that the team likely would kick in
     a "substantial amount."  Cardinals officials declined
     comment on Monday (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 6/16).
