Bill that would help fund Husky Stadium dies one more time

There had been a last-ditch effort to revive the bill that would have helped fund a renovation of Husky Stadium.
But Times political reporter Jim Brunner reports that the bill died again this week and while there’s a chance it could resurface, this also could be it.
Here’s his report.
If this is it for this bill for this year, UW will have to figure out what it does next to fund the renovation — it needs $250-$270 million or so.
UW AD Scott Woodward has said that if the bill failed again, the school would go to its Plan B. He hasn’t said exactly what that is and won’t until this is all done. But it’s probably what you would expect — trying to hit up the big-time donors, selling naming rights in some fashion, etc.
If the bill had passed, UW had hoped to begin the renovation after the 2010 season. If it doesn’t, they likely couldn’t begin until after the 2011 season at the earliest.
