A TRI-STATE REGIONAL STADIUM AUTHORITY PROPOSED FOR CINCY
Published October 14, 1994
Regional leaders said a sports stadium in downtown Cincinnati cannot be built without the cooperation and tax dollars of OH, KY & IN. Members of the tristate task force deciding how to build the stadium "voted unanimously to pursue an interstate compact" among counties in all three states. If approved by legislators in each state and Congress, the pact would create a developmental agency to cross "political jurisdictions and raise money for the stadium, as well as oversee, own and manage it." The agency would also create a "regional tool to pursue high speed rail and enhanced airport development." Jim Duance, Exec Dir of the OH-KY-IN Regional Council of Governments: "It would not be just another piece of government, but it could act as a safety net to undertake projects which cannot be pursued by one or few units of local government now because they are too expensive or too impractical" (Richard Green, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 10/14).
