The Sun'll Come Out!
Are we there yet? Looks like a deal's close.
D.C. Mayor Anthony A. Williams and Council Chairman Linda W. Cropp were
nearing an agreement tonight on the terms of a baseball stadium financing
package that they said would probably satisfy Major League Baseball by
guaranteeing construction of a future home for the Washington Nationals, aides
to the two city leaders said.
After a day of negotiations among the two politicians and baseball
officials, Cropp left the John A. Wilson Building at about 7:45 p.m., as
Williams and his aides were still working on terms of the proposed agreement on
the sixth floor.
"There's movement but we'll see," said Cropp, adding that she would return
tonight if necessary.
