ABSTRACT
The article reports on financial matters related to sell of bonds in Washington D.C. A leading District of Columbia lawmaker opposed to Mayor Anthony Williams's $1 billion-plus bond-financed proposal for a new baseball stadium and related community development projects conceded yesterday than the plan will receive majority backing on the city's 13-member District Council in two crucial upcoming votes. The council's economic development committee and finance and revenue committee both approved the measure. To build the stadium, the District Council must authorize up to $500 million of bonds and enact tax legislation by the end of the year under the agreement signed on September 29, 2004.
