TIGER STADIUM/CASINO PROPOSAL COMES UP SNAKE EYES
Published June 29, 1995
MI Gov. John Engler rejected a plan to use casino revenues to fund a casino/stadium project in the Foxtown area of Detroit. Engler said Tuesday that "the likelihood of a (casino) passing the legislature is practically nil." Tigers officials want to build a new Tiger Stadium with public funding in the purchase of land and construction of new roads. Tigers President John McHale: "We're disappointed, but it was the governor's call. We'll go back to the drawing board and continue to move forward without a casino" (Chris Christoff, DETROIT FREE PRESS, 6/28). DETROIT NEWS columnist Jon Pepper: "You can probably forget about a new Tiger Stadium" (DETROIT NEWS, 6/28).
