Santa Clara Backpedaling on 49'ers Offer

Is Sana Clara backing away slowly from the 49ers' advances? Perhaps so: last night, the Santa Clara City Council voted to stand down on decision making regarding the ballot. The issue at hand: how to make the vote on said ballot legally binding, given the time needed to prepare for construction. "This is a more complicated issue than we originally thought," City Manager Jennifer Sparacino claimed. $51 million of complication, actually— that's the amount of additional funding requested by the 49ers to complete the $136 stadium.
