ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri Governor Jay Nixon is headed to St. Louis Tuesday morning to provide an update on plans for a new pro football stadium on the downtown waterfront.

The governor has scheduled a 10 a.m. news conference at a site along the Mississippi River for a proposed 64,000-seat, open-air football stadium that would replace the indoor Edward Jones Dome.

Rams owner Stan Kroenke is part of a joint venture building an 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles area. The move could mean a return of the NFL to the nation’s second-largest market and the home of the Rams from 1946 until they moved to St. Louis in 1995.

The Rams recently shifted to a year-to-year lease agreement for the downtown dome.
