MOAG SAYS HE HAS NO CONFLICT OF INTEREST WITH NEW POSITION

          MD Stadium Authority Chair John Moag, who was named to
     head the sports investment group at Legg Mason Wood Walker
     Inc., said that he "will take the steps necessary to avoid
     conflicts of interest," according to Jon Morgan of the
     Baltimore SUN.  Moag said that his investment group "won't
     be looking for work" in MD and added, "The kind of stuff I'm
     going to be doing here is out of state."  However, Morgan
     wrote that others "aren't so sure," including MD Common
     Cause Exec Dir Kathleen Skullney, who called Moag's new
     position "very problematic," and said Moag "has a
     responsibility to the state not to wear those two hats." 
     Moag said that he "will recuse himself from consideration of
     business that might overlap with Legg Mason's work," adding
     that Legg Mason "won't do business" with the Stadium
     Authority or either Baltimore team (Baltimore SUN, 6/7).
