STATE CONSIDERS USING GAMBLING TO FUND STADIUM
Published February 3, 1995
In Milwaukee, the state is considering using Indian gambling revenue "to help pay for" a new Brewers stadium. According to Gov. Tommy Thompson's top aide James Klauser, the governor has not yet endorsed the idea "of asking a tribe to expand its gambling operation in exchange for helping foot the bill for a new stadium." The tribe most likely to be asked, if the governor decides on the gaming option, is the Forest County Potawatomi. The tribe "appeared to open the door for talks" Thursday, although a proposal was not made (Cary Spivak, MILWAUKEE SENTINEL, 2/3).
