Answer: yes, if one anonymous tipster is reading several signs correctly. To flag some just-behind-the-scenes details to my colleague’s Philly expansion post below:
“-reportedly, Gov. Rendell has already agreed to the Philly MLS deal. He is just waiting for the Senate/House to pass the bill to sign it.”
“-The senate majority leader, former Chester city mayor, is a champion of the Chester MLS stadium project. He is fully behind it.”
“-The House appropriations chair is also 100% behind it.”
“-Both the chair and the majority leader are from 2 different parties, but completely agree this is a good project”
So, will it be the Emerald City (Seattle) and the City of Brotherly Love?
