Greedy Municipal Workers

Something to remember for when Chuck Lane and Fred Hiatt start blathering on about DC's unaffordable pensions.
In the agreement, several aspects of which have not been finalized and would require approval from the D.C. Council, the District and United would split the costs for the project, with the city providing about $150 million to assemble land and prepare the site and the team spending a similar amount building the stadium. Levien said the team had yet to decide whether to build a 20,000-seat stadium with room for expansion or build 25,000 seats at the start.

Amazing how $150 million can just appear when you "need" it.
