DALLAS TEAM OWNERS ASK FOR SPECIAL LEGISLATION BY MAY 31
Published April 25, 1995
Owners from the Mavericks, Stars, and Cowboys reiterated their desire for legislation to "allow cities to create special tax districts around sports facilities." This would allow any "additional" hotel and alcohol taxes from the district to help pay for the facility. The Legislature is expected to take up arena related bills before the end of their May 31 session. Mavs Owner Donald Carter, who wanted to be in a new arena by the '97- 98 season, said he "has become frustrated by the whole affair," but that he is not "ready to break off negotiations yet" (Sylvia Martinez, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 4/22).
