Gov. Nathan Deal said yesterday that he's looking into different options for funding a new Falcons stadium. While he acknowledged that the proposed $300 million of public funding seemed "a little bit high," he also saw the long term cost-saving merits of building a new facility that's expected to cost at least $1 billion.
