THE GREAT MARYLAND STADIUM SAGA NEARING AN END?
Last night, The MD Senate "tentatively approved" $270.5M
toward infrastructure costs for a proposed Redskins stadium and
to build a new Baltimore stadium, according to the Baltimore SUN.
In a "key test," the Senate "narrowly rejected" an amendment
which would have diverted $19M from the projects to Baltimore
school construction. While final Senate approval is likely this
week, the deals must still clear the MD House (Jensen & Smith,
Baltimore SUN, 3/14). Also, Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke has
signed an agreement with Prince George's County and MD Gov.
Parris Glendening, which should "clear the way" for the team to
begin construction (Charles Babington, WASHINGTON POST, 3/14).
