The article reports that as a year-end deadline approaches, the District of Columbia Council may reconsider legislation at its final scheduled meeting of the year today that requires the city to obtain private financing for half of the construction costs of a proposed ballpark that would house the Washington Nationals baseball team. If the council fails to wrap up the matter today, it could also hold an emergency meeting next week to consider the ballpark proposal. If the council fails to act in time, Major League Baseball would be allowed to walk away from the deal.
