AT LEAST I'M ENJOYING THE RIDE: STADIUM/ARENA NOTES
Published August 10, 1995
New Jersey Assemblyman Joseph Roberts and Assistant State Senate Minority Leader Richard J. Codey have called for public hearings on NJ Sports and Exposition Authority's tentative agreement to "sweeten" the Devils' lease at Bryne Arena. Both men complain lawmakers and taxpayers have been shut out of the whole process (Stephen Hirsch, Bergen RECORD, 8/10)....WI Gov. Tommy Thompson said the Brewers and his administration were "very close" to agreeing on a financial package for a new stadium, according to Craig Gilbert in this morning's MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. The two sides still reportedly have "a number of issues -- from money to control" to work out. Craig reports there is talk of a September special session for the State Legislature before it commences September 19. State officials also disclosed they have retained a financial adviser to examine the team's financial records. The consulting firm Public Financial Management has "looked at the Brewers' records on the state's behalf" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 8/10).
