          CT Governor John Rowland today will present an
     "ambitious" plan to "invigorate" downtown Hartford.  The
     plan includes a convention center, "perhaps with an attached
     domed or outdoor stadium, representing a state investment of
     roughly" $150M (HARTFORD COURANT, 3/19)....In Denver, a new
     survey by Ciruli Associates polled 546 registered voters and
     found that 57% would vote for a stadium tax to help finance
     a new Broncos stadium, while 39% opposed the project (ROCKY
     MOUNTAIN NEWS, 3/19).  The survey, conducted this month, is
     an increase from 53% who supported the tax before the
     Broncos won the Super Bowl, but a "slight decrease" from
     numbers immediately after the Super Bowl, which showed
     support "running closer" to 60% (DENVER POST, 3/19)....The
     Tampa Sports Authority (TSA) has raised parking at
     Houlihan's Stadium from $5 to $6.  The first such increase
     in six years will take effect with the MLS Mutiny's opening
     game.  TSA does not control parking prices for Buccaneers
     games, and the team "is expected to announce its prices in
     the near future" (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 3/19).
