Arlington is one step closer to getting a new $1 billion air-conditioned stadium for the Texas Rangers. The Arlington City Council voted Tuesday night in favor of putting the stadium on the ballot in November. The vote was conducted during a “first reading” of the proposal. The plan has the Rangers moving into a new stadium by 2021 and extending the club’s commitment to the city through 2054. Half of the stadium would be paid for by the city. The Rangers would pay for the other half.
