FINANCING PLAN CLOSE TO APPROVAL FOR NEW BREWERS STADIUM
Published September 12, 1995
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).
