FINANCING PLAN CLOSE TO APPROVAL FOR NEW BREWERS STADIUM

     WI Senate Majority Leader Michael Ellis predicted Monday
that lawmakers would approve a plan to expand the proposed sales
tax increase to four counties and eliminate any hotel/motel tax
increases as a way to finance the public contribution to the
building of a new $250M stadium for the Brewers, according to the
MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL.  While Ellis called the plan the
"worst thing Wisconsin has done in 25 years," he added, "I think
they've probably got a good shot at passing this."  An Assembly
Committee is expected to approve the expanded sales tax to
Ozaukee and Washington counties this week (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL
SENTINEL, 9/12).
