MARINERS STADIUM PLANS HIT "ROADBLOCK"
Published March 3, 1995
Plans for a new Mariners stadium "hit a major roadblock" in the state Legislature Wednesday as a House committee voted 9-4 against the proposal. House Committee on Trade and Economic Development Chair Steve Van Luven: "We are all very concerned and don't want to lose the Mariners. It just means we didn't agree with the wording in this bill." Among the main components of the bill were creating a new scratch-off lottery game and diverting 5% of revenue from the state sales and use taxes on rental cars toward the stadium. Mariners VP for Business Development Paul Isaki: "This is a marathon, not a sprint. There are bumps in the road and you have to look at it that way" (Bruscas & Andersson, SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 3/2).
