On Passage of the Brewers Stadium Legislation
“The Legislature’s action today advances my goals of keeping the Brewers in Milwaukee and protecting local taxpayers.
“With this agreement, the local contribution comes exclusively from the administrative fee associated with the local sales tax. What that means is no negative impacts will be felt in future city budgets and no loss of shared revenue as a result of the stadium deal.
“I want to thank the Governor, Assembly and Senate leaders, and all who have thoughtfully examined the options and listened carefully to local concerns. What legislators have achieved is a bipartisan solution that keeps Major League Baseball in Milwaukee for the foreseeable future.
“I am grateful to all the partners who worked toward a positive outcome including organized labor and business leaders.
“Milwaukee is a big-league city. Our sports teams add life to our city; they create jobs, and they raise Milwaukee’s profile around the country and around the world. Today’s actions affirm that.”
