ANNAPOLIS (AP) — To encourage the Washington Commanders to stay in Maryland, the Maryland House has approved a measure with a $400 million plan to develop the area around FedEx Field in the suburbs of the nation's capital.

The bill approved Wednesday doesn't include money for a new stadium for the NFL team.

The House voted 121-10 for the bill, which now goes to the Senate with less than a week to go in the state's legislative session.

The measure would authorize the Maryland Stadium Authority to use money from the state lottery to build infrastructure in Prince George's County.
