Anti-Real Stadium petition chances are slim

Although it is far from being official, early word is the petition to force the Real Salt Lake stadium funding deal onto the ballot will fail.

Chances are slim a statewide vote on public funds for the Real Salt Lake soccer stadium will make an election ballot, according to early numbers from clerks for the state's largest counties.

By the end of the day Monday, Salt Lake County reported 341 petition packets had been turned in; each of those packets contains anywhere from one to 550 signatures. In Utah County, nine packets were turned in; in Washington County, one. In Davis County, several packets were submitted but they totaled less than 100 signatures.

There must be a bit of a sigh of relief going on at RSL headquarters today.
