WI SENATE TABLES STADIUM EQUIPMENT LEASING BILL UNTIL MAY
Published March 19, 1997
The WI State Senate voted 18-15 Tuesday to have the Judiciary Committee review the bill that would limit the leasing of equipment for the Brewers' Miller Park, according to Amy Rinard of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. Stadium Board Chair Robert Trunzo and Brewers President Bud Selig "praised the Senate's action." The possibility that the bill would "spark a string of lawsuits ... that would delay or even kill the project" arose during the vote. Sen. Joe Wineke, the bill's sponsor, said the delay "would ultimately kill the legislation." Judiciary Chair Lynn Adelman opposes the legislation (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 3/18).
