BREWERS STADIUM PLAN HITS ANOTHER SNAG

     "Serious legal questions" were raised yesterday about the
"constitutionality" of a proposed plan to help finance a new
stadium for the Brewers, according to Amy Rinard of the MILWAUKEE
JOURNAL SENTINEL.  The questions, raised by attorneys for the
Legislative Reference Bureau, "sent a shock wave through the
Legislature" where members are under "increasing pressure" to act
on the bill.  Among the violations claimed:  The state's
financial advice and construction management services could
violate the internal improvements clause of the WI Constitution,
which prohibits the state from becoming directly involved in a
local building project;  2) The Constitution's prohibition on
"special and private" laws enacted to assess or collect taxes
(MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 9/22).
