HOUSTON MAYOR LANIER OPPOSES PUBLIC FUNDS FOR SUMMIT
Published September 21, 1995
A day after oilman Chuck Watson bought operating rights to The Summit and proposed $45M in improvements be financed with taxpayer and team funds, Houston Mayor Bob Lanier said his "longstanding opposition" to using public funds on a new football stadium also applies to improvements to the Summit. The mayor, however, did leave open the possibility of some form of public financing for renovations, "with a sanction from taxpayers" (Mason & Williams HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 9/21).
