Feds introduce bill to eliminate subsidies for pro stadiums, citing Washington Commanders investigation

Feb 23, 2022

The investigation into the Washington Commanders' workplace -- and the NFL's response -- served as an impetus for a bill introduced in Congress aimed at eliminating subsidies for professional stadiums.

Three members of Congress -- Reps. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), Don Beyer (D-Va.) and Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) -- introduced a bill on Tuesday that would immediately eliminate a tax break used by professional sports teams. They labeled the bill the "No Tax Subsidies for Stadiums Act."
