“We applaud the Bears working to stay in Chicago and support the economic development opportunities that building a new publicly owned stadium would bring,” Lavin said. “A new stadium would amplify our reputation as a world-class city and a premier tourist destination, offering new opportunities for the business community and adding jobs for Chicago residents. We look forward to working with the Bears organization, as well as city and state officials, as plans continue to develop.”
