The Virginia Senate is considering legislation that would allow the issuance of up to $1 billion in government bonds to help fund a new Washington Commanders stadium in Northern Virginia.

The Virginia Football Stadium Authority would be authorized to sell $1 billion in bonds to help finance a new Washington Commanders stadium in Northern Virginia under the proposal. At least $2 billion would have to be invested by the Commanders.
