ATLANTA -- Attention is shifting to a second site for a stadium that would be the new home for the Atlanta Falcons.

A deadline to buy two churches on the stadium's preferred site is just over a week away, and no deal with the congregations has been reached.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a Georgia World Congress Center Authority committee will vote Wednesday on a measure involving the second site.

The committee plans to decide whether to ask the state to give the Falcons permission to begin "due diligence work" on the alternative site to determine whether it's suitable to build the $1 billion stadium. That site is a half-mile north of the Georgia Dome.

Officials continue to negotiate with the churches near the preferred site, south of the Georgia Dome.
