Finally some movement on Husky Stadium bill

There has finally been some movement on the bill that could provide funding to help renovate Husky Stadium as Senate Bill 6116 has passed out of committee.
That happened this morning, as you can see here.
This is the same bill that would also provide money to renovate KeyArena and maybe bring an NBA team back to Seattle. A press release from the group “Save Our Sonics” this morning waxed optimistic about the bill’s future, saying “The bill has momentum and is expected to
pass the Senate this week, which means it must pass the state House or have its language amended into House Bill 2252 to be enacted into law.”
The session ends April 26, so as much as anything, this morning’s news shows that something is finally beginning to happen on this and there should be some resolution, for this year anyway, by the end of the week. UW officials have said there is no Plan B if this effort fails. However, the most likely Plan B is that they’ll wait another year and try again in 2010.
If I get more on this later I’ll pass it along.
