DOME IN NORTH HOUSTON CALLED "IMPOSSIBLE"
TX state Rep. Kevin Brady said it is "impossible" for
Montgomery County to subsidize a domed stadium for Oilers owner
Bud Adams. Brady claims that county officials "have known for
four months that they lack the financial firepower" to build on
the site north of Houston, but continued to give the "impression
they could build" such a facility because they want Montgomery
County to be seen as a regional business leader. Brady: "It is
just that the numbers are impossible. That is why the rest of us
didn't jump on it." News that Rockets Owner Leslie Alexander did
not want to move his team to Montgomery County also hurt the
project (John Williams, HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 9/27).
