The Washington Post reported that lawmakers discussing a new Potomac Yard home for the Washington Capitals and Wizards voted in favor of the deal yesterday.

The Major Economic Investment (MEI) Project Approval Commission met on Monday and voted to support the new complex in Potomac Yard, which would include a music venue/convention center, a hotel, the sports center, and $200 million in transportation funding, NBC reported.

Any plans for a new Potomac Yard stadium would still need approval from the General Assembly as well as Alexandria’s City Council.
