Commanders bill officially pulled from consideration in Virginia legislature




The Virginia legislature will not consider a stadium bill for the Washington Commanders when it reconvenes to consider the Governor’s budget amendments and vetoes.


Its sponsors said Thursday they will leave the bill in its conference committee until the legislative session ends, instead of bringing a final version to the House and Senate for a vote.


Any further action would have to take place in next year's General Assembly with a new bill.


Senator Dick Saslaw, D-Fairfax, who sponsored the Senate bill, said he continues to support the project but "it's become clear that there are issues to be resolved."


He noted the Congressional hearings into team owner Dan Snyder and the Attorney General investigation into the team's finances as obstacles that should be resolved before further consideration.


House Appropriations Chairman Barry Knight, R-Virginia Beach, who sponsored legislation in the House, said in an interview, “I totally concur with him.”
