HOUSTON TASK FORCE TO RELEASE PLANS FOR $625M SPORTS PROJECT

     A Houston task force is expected to unveil today a proposal
for spending $625M on three facilities, including a new
basketball arena, a baseball stadium with a retractable roof and
refitting the Astrodome for football, according to John Williams
of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE.  Early response on the proposals varied
from "cautious optimism to downright skepticism."  While there
are no exact financing details,  the plan "suggests various
sources of money from the private and public sector" (HOUSTON
CHRONICLE, 5/19).
