WISCONSIN OFFICIALS PUT THE KIELBASA ON BREWERS NEW PLAN
Published February 21, 1996
The Brewers lost their bid to restructure their stadium financing plan, as WI legislators said shifting a $50M loan from the team to the state-created stadium district "violates the spirit" of the understanding passed last October. Team and state officials will continue to study options (AP/MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 2/21). Columnist Michael Bauman writes the controversy surrounding the plan is unnecessary, as the team is "merely trying to stay in Wisconsin." Bauman speculates the Brewers were having difficulty obtaining the $50M loan (JOURNAL SENTINEL, 2/21).
