COST ESTIMATES FOR NEW BREWERS STADIUM IS CLOSE TO $200M

     The Brewers "will have to spell out how much of the
estimated" $265M -- the cost of the team's new stadium project --
"they will cover before a decision can be made on raising public
funds to make up the difference" according to Daniel Hanley of the
MILWAUKEE JOURNAL.  The Brewers are "at least two weeks away from
revealing" that figure which could delay the work of the
Governor's Milwaukee Stadium Commission.  That group faces a
February 1 deadline to recommend a way to raise public funds.
Yesterday, project consultants gave the commission new cost
estimates and a timeline.  Construction cost:  $145M, plus another
$51.66M for the convertible roof -- not including infrastructure
costs earlier placed at $67M.  The timeline calls for temporary
financing to be in place at the start of '95 with funding approval
in March '95 (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL, 12/1).
