CHICAGO MAYOR DALEY WANTS STATE AID FOR NEW STADIUM
Published October 20, 1995
Chicago Mayor Richard Daley said yesterday he wants the state to help renovate Soldier Field "to improve transportation, reduce Park District debt or sweeten the deal for the bears," but IL Gov. Jim Edgar is "not inclined to help," according to this morning's CHICAGO SUN-TIMES. Edgar: "I'm surprised this has come up. I've said all along I don't see state dollars going into subsidizing a sports stadium." Daley said he was hoping for about $20M from the state to help defray the cost of renovating Soldier Field (Fran Spielman, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 10/20).
