PATS EYE USE OF INCOME TAX FROM NEW TV DEAL FOR STADIUM HELP
Published January 30, 1998
Members of the MA Senate "are considering writing a bill that would dedicate" the Patriots increased payroll taxes to finance state-funded infrastructure improvements near Foxboro Stadium, according to Tina Cassidy of the BOSTON GLOBE. With the new NFL TV deal, teams will get an additional $40M on average per year, most of which will go to player salaries. That means the Patriots "will generate an extra" $2.4M in income taxes, "just about enough to cover" the debt service on the state spending that Owner Bob Kraft says he needs for the expansion (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/30).
