St. Louis residents still may get to vote on city funding for a new riverfront football stadium if some on the city's governing board get their way.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports several members of the St. Louis Board of Aldermen on Friday are to introduce a measure that require a public vote before allowing the city to spend roughly $150 million on the billion-dollar stadium.

Mayor Francis Slay's office cautions such a bill could kill plans for the new stadium.

The move comes two months after a St. Louis judge declared as invalid an existing city ordinance requiring a public vote.

It's still unclear if St. Louis will have an NFL team when the stadium is finished. Rams owner Stan Kroenke is seeking to move to Los Angeles.
