Lawmakers announce opposition to using public money for NFL stadium

St. Louis, MO (AP) – The St. Louis Rams could be a little closer to returning to Los Angeles after Missouri’s legislative budget leaders said they oppose spending taxpayer money on a new football stadium.

House Budget Chairman Tom Flanigan sent a letter Wednesday to Gov. Jay Nixon warning that he will block any effort to put money in the state budget for payments on a new stadium unless the Legislature or voters first approve the additional debt.

Nixon and the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority are working to piece together money for a new stadium as a counterproposal to efforts by Rams owner Stan Kroenke to move the team to the Los Angeles area.
