STATE CONSIDERS USING GAMBLING TO FUND STADIUM

     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).
