CHICAGO MAYOR DALEY WANTS STATE AID FOR NEW STADIUM

     Chicago Mayor Richard Daley said yesterday he wants the
state to help renovate Soldier Field "to improve transportation,
reduce Park District debt or sweeten the deal for the bears," but
IL Gov. Jim Edgar is "not inclined to help," according to this
morning's CHICAGO SUN-TIMES.  Edgar:  "I'm surprised this has
come up.  I've said all along I don't see state dollars going
into subsidizing a sports stadium."  Daley said he was hoping for
about $20M from the state to help defray the cost of renovating
Soldier Field (Fran Spielman, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 10/20).
