WISCONSIN GOV. SAYS "NO" TO EXPANDED GAMING FOR STADIUM CASH
Published February 8, 1995
Gov. Tommy Thompson has refused to push for more Indian gaming in exchange for money that could help build a new stadium for the Brewers. However, Thompson "propped the door open" for discussions on "revenue sharing" -- having the tribes give up a share of their growing profits to the state (Steve Schultze, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL, 2/7). NO PROPERTY TAX: Milwaukee Common Council President John Kalwitz predicts any stadium financing plan that includes sizeable contributions from the city thorough increased property taxes would be "dead-on-arrival" (Nichols & Enriquez, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL, 2/7).
