New stadium still looks to be right on schedule for a delayed completion, if MLB ever gets around to saying yes to the revised lease.
"If Major League Baseball approves the lease, and if the sale of [construction] bonds goes forward, I will promptly sign the order of possession...Yes, I am waiting. This case has a number of parties who have rights, and I have to be equitable in my responsibility." (Judge Joan Zeldon, via Washington Post 2/25/2006)
"We worked hard to make sure that every landowner was treated with respect and was well compensated for their property...It's our hope that we can begin building the ballpark this spring." (Vince Morris, mayor's spokesman, via Washington Times 2/25/2006)
