VA LEGISLATURE TO HEAR TAXING PROPOSALS FOR NEW BALLPARK
Published April 22, 1996
VA legislators will be offered up to "a dozen" alternatives for taxing Northern Virginians to help pay for a new baseball stadium in a study presented today by Stafford Sports Ventures and Government Finance Group. An advance copy, obtained by the WASHINGTON POST, notes options include levies on cigarettes, hotel, room, restaurant meals, wine and liquor. This will be the "first detailed glimpse" of possible revenue options as stadium backers "step up" the campaign for public help to fund the $250M venture. Some officials reportedly want "to take a closer look" at the financing recently approved in San Francisco for the new Giants ballpark at China Basin (WASHINGTON POST, 4/22).
