Washington, D.C. (March 30, 2009) - Following a 17-7 vote by the Maryland House of Delegates Appropriations Committee on House Bill 1282, D.C. United issued the following statement:

“We’re pleased that the House Appropriations Committee passed HB1282 as amended. This bill will allow the Maryland Stadium Authority to work with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission and D.C. United to take a comprehensive look at the stadium opportunity and make recommendations to the Governor and legislature by the end of the year. We certainly hope there will be favorable votes in the full House and the Senate so that we may begin the work to answer all of our stadium-related questions.”
