D.C. government is moving forward with plans to spend public money on a sports and entertainment facility on the former St. Elizabeths campus, a major project East of the Anacostia River. The deal sparked controversy when it was announced because the Washington Wizards and Mystics will only pay about a tenth of the cost for a facility they will then use for practices and games. But some lawmakers were taken aback last week when they learned the project will cost $10 million more than originally estimated, even though construction hasn’t even started yet.
