NEW CROSSROADS ARENA IN BUFFALO GETS GREEN LIGHT
Published March 24, 1995
The Public Authorities Control Board, made up of NY state leaders, yesterday approved a $25M loan for the new Crossroads Arena in Buffalo, ending weeks of "backroom wrangling" over stadium projects throughout the state (BUFFALO NEWS, 3/24). The vote had been twice postponed because Republicans and Democrats "could not agree" on a $488,150 grant to refurbish a hockey arena in Binghamton. NY Gov. George Pataki accused Democrats of holding the Binghamton arena "hostage" in order to win funding for a new baseball stadium in Syracuse. Until Wednesday, Republicans "refused to allow" the Crossroads loan to go ahead without approval for Binghamton (Jon Sorensen, BUFFALO NEWS, 3/23).
