DC AGENCY VOTES TO GIVE ITSELF OVERSIGHT OF ARENA PROJECT

     In a unanimous vote yesterday, members of the DC
Redevelopment Land Agency (RLA) approved an agreement that would
allow the National Capital Development Corp. to lease a city
block at Gallery Place to Bullets/Caps Owner Abe Pollin to
construct a 20,000-seat arena.  The WASHINGTON TIMES reports this
is a "step forward" for the project, but also "sets up more
hurdles" for arena negotiators as RLA will have the final say on
how the city finances its part of the project (Lorraine Woellert,
WASHINGTON TIMES, 6/23).
