WISCONSIN GOV. SAYS "NO" TO EXPANDED GAMING FOR STADIUM CASH

     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).
