BREWERS STADIUM LACKS VOTES IN SENATE; POSSIBLE ACTION TODAY
Published October 3, 1995
Those in support of a plan to build a new stadium for the Brewers admitted Monday afternoon they still do not have enough votes to pass a stadium bill in the Senate, but "agreed to push for Senate action" on the measure today, according to the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. Senator Peggy Rosenzweig yesterday: "We don't have enough votes yet, but we will by tomorrow." While WI Gov. Tommy Thompson said stadium supporters were five votes shy of the 17 needed in the Senate, Brewers officials said former Brewers Hank Aaron and Robin Yount would be at the Capitol today lobbying on the stadium legislation. Brewers President Bud Selig and GM Sal Bando will also be on hand to generate support for the measure (Amy Rinard, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 10/3). OPPOSITION: Meg Jones notes in the JOURNAL SENTINEL that a letter signed by eight Racine County supervisors calls for the county's corporation counsel to draft a resolution challenging the constitutionality of the stadium plan's proposed five-county sales tax increase. No legal challenges can officially be made until the bill is signed into law (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 10/3).
