According to the Virginia House of Delegates voted 14 to 7 to help bring pro football to Virginia.

The bill advanced by the Virginia House of Delegates will allow the creation of a Virginia Football Stadium Authority.

The bill has to now pass the Senate and then be signed by the governor before becoming law.

The stadium authority group could be appointed by the governor to fast track and issue bonds for the construction of a professional football stadium in Virginia.

Sites being considered for a possible stadium are in Loudoun and or Prince William Counties.

A new stadium in Virginia could lure the Washington football team to the Commonwealth.
