SHARE OAKLAND, SACRAMENTO STILL WOOING RAIDERS

The Los Angeles Raiders have approved the "framework" of a proposal to bring the team back to Oakland, an Alameda County supervisor said.

Meanwhile, a report published Sunday said construction of a new outdoor stadium designed for a pro football team resumed in Sacramento, where officials also are negotiating with the Raiders.Gregg Lukenbill, managing general partner of the Sacramento Sports Association, confirmed that construction had resumed at the Arco Sports Complex, according to a report in Sunday editions of The Sacramento Union.

The 72,000-seat stadium is designed for a pro football team and a major league baseball team.

The SSA is negotiating with Raider's owner Al Davis to bring the team to Sacramento, but no agreement, formal or informal, is in place. The stadium is nevertheless expected to be ready in time for the 1991 NFL season, SSA officials said.
