MARYLAND STADIUM ROUND-UP: PRO-STADIUM "MOOD SWING"?
The WASHINGTON TIMES reviews the "rallying" efforts of MD
Gov. Parris Glendening over the past two weeks to build public
support for new Baltimore franchise and Redskins stadiums.
Despite state polls showing opposition to the projects, John
Mercurio reports there is "definitely a mood swing" and a "new
enthusiasm" for the proposals in the MD Legislature (WASHINGTON
TIMES, 2/16)....A group which opposes the two deals has gathered
under the label, Citizens for Legitimate Investment Priorities
(WASHINGTON TIMES, 2/16)....Prince George's County officials have
introduced a measure to create a $37M sports complex and park to
be located next to the proposed Redskins stadium. Owner Jack
Kent Cooke has offered to contribute $3M toward the project
(Terry Neal, WASHINGTON POST, 2/16).
