District of Columbia Councilmember David Grosso introduced a bill to prohibit the use of taxpayer dollars to subsidize a stadium for the Washington professional football team. The bill would create a compact among DC, MD, and VA that each jurisdiction would not use taxpayer dollars to subsidize a stadium. Delegate David Moon of Maryland is also involved in the effort. While this is clearly a long shot, it is an important bill to support. The team must not receive any public taxpayer support while it has a racist name. See our letter here. We encourage you to write your own letter to DC Councilmembers and Del. Moon in support of this bill.
