Pack to get $13M from NFL
The Green Bay Packers will receive a $13 million loan from the NFL to help pay for the team's planned $295 million renovation of Lambeau Field. The loan was approved at the league's spring owners meeting late last month. The final financial obstacle to the renovation for the Packers is obtaining $9.1 million from Wisconsin state officials to pay for road and parking improvements around the stadium. Wisconsin Gov. Scott McCallum included the funding in his proposed state budget, but the expenditure was still pending approval from the state Legislature last week.
