Santa Clara to discuss wording of stadium measure

Posted: Updated:

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- Santa Clara city leaders are set to discuss the final wording of the ballot measure for a proposed stadium for the San Francisco 49ers.

On Tuesday night, the Santa Clara City Council is scheduled to discuss language that city staffers describe as a multilayered question asking voters if city leaders should approve the stadium deal.

But backers of the proposed $947 million stadium have expressed concerns the language regarding funding is confusing. They hope to get the wording altered before the ballot is made available to city residents.

City officials have said the stadium would generate hundreds of jobs and tens of millions of dollars in annual revenue, but critics worry about cost overruns and traffic problems.
