The cost of financing a new stadium in Milwaukee "could be lower than previously thought," according to Craig Gilbert of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL. Stadium boosters and public officials had been under the impression that it would take a "revenue stream" of $18-22M a year for the next 20 years to pay for the project. Now, the governor's top cabinet official says those figures "are getting better." Gilbert writes that while funding has been discussed, the main question remains: "Who pays for it." WI Gov. Tommy Thompson said Monday that a stadium authority or district will be created to manage the entire process. But Gilbert notes that that still leaves questions as to "How big the stadium district will be?," and "Who will sit on the stadium district board?" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL, 5/10).
