Published December 8, 1997
"Still stinging from the political battle over funding" for the new Brewers ballpark, "key" legislators and WI Gov. Tommy Thompson said Friday that the Packers "might have a tough time getting state funding for a proposed Lambeau Field expansion," according to Jones & Walters of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. Packers President Bob Harlan has said the team might seek financial support from the state to help fund the expansion. Thompson: "They'd have to have a very good proposal before it would pass." Assembly Majority Leader Stephen Foti, noting the Packers' ongoing stock sale: "The Packers can afford it themselves. That was the purpose of the stock offer" (JOURNAL SENTINEL, 12/6).
