Hearing Today On RFK Stadium Site

(Washington , DC) — Congressional hearings are being held today and tomorrow to determine the future use of the old RFK Stadium site. A bill being considered would transfer control of the stadium from the federal government to the District. The terms of the transfer from the Secretary of the Interior to D.C. would reserve at least 30-percent of the stadium campus for parks and green space and restrict use of the site for a stadium, residential and commercial development or recreational and outdoor space. The transfer could facilitate the return of the Washington Commanders to RFK. The U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources meets today and a House Committee on Oversight and Accountability meets tomorrow to discuss the bill.
