BREWERS STADIUM PLAN HITS ANOTHER SNAG
Published September 22, 1995
"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).
