QUESTION OF "WHO PAYS" HOLDS UP BREWERS' STADIUM PLANS
Published January 9, 1995
As the WI Governor's Stadium Commission concludes its business over the next three weeks, questions will have to be answered regarding a new facility for the Brewers. Questions remain how much the team will contribute to the $200M-plus project, how much the public will pay, and where that public money will come from. But as Craig Gilbert writes in the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL, "While the stadium project has apparently evolved over time from a largely private one to a largely public one, the implications of that have never been made explicit to the public." Brewers VP/General Counsel Wendy Selig-Prieb on publicly-assisted financing of a new stadium: "I don't believe the public will be surprised. I think there is a much higher sophistication of knowledge about the sports business than there has ever been" (Craig Gilbert, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL, 1/8).
