UNCERTAINTY CONTINUES OVER NEW MARINERS HOME
Published May 2, 1995
With Mariners owners saying they will put the team up for sale next year if a new stadium isn't built, the future of the team appears to be in the hands of some dissenting lawmakers. The bill that passed the House last month to give a tax break on stadium construction costs and shift some of an existing tax on rental cars toward stadium bonds was never acted on by the Senate. Now, according to state Rep. Steve Van Luven, WA House members are trying to come up with a bill that a "very cautious" Legislature will support. Many members say government "should have no involvement" in building a stadium. And, Rep. Marlin Appelwick, has said that "support for a stadium-financing bill probably peaked a week ago" (David Postman, SEATTLE TIMES, 5/2).
