Congress To Protect Historic Stadiums Amid College Football Facility Boom

Aug 25, 2023

A bipartisan group of U.S. Congressman has created a new caucus devoted to protecting college football stadiums — a pointed response to an accelerating facility arms race within the sport.

Led by Rep. Garret Graves (R-Louisiana) and Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wisconsin), the Historic Stadium Caucus will develop strategies to preserve and modernize facilities that in some cases are more than 120 years old, but in a historically meaningful way.

The group will particularly focus on security and safety enhancements, technological upgrades, and securing funding for infrastructure improvements.
