ABSTRACT
The article reports on the selling of 1 billion dollars in debt by the District of Columbia. Introduction of legislation that would implement the revised financing package came the week after district officials said that the city planned to sell not more than 810 million dollars in debt for the proposed stadium that will house the former Montreal Expos franchise, the baseball team, and for various community projects that the mayor, Anthony Williams, threw into the mix in order to placate opponents of his bond-financed baseball stadium package.
