The addition of a non-Brewer game ticket tax and a lot less money from the state are still not enough to win over some Republicans on the Brewer ballpark funding deal.
A Senate committee yesterday okayed the non-game tax, and said the state will now pay less than 400-million dollars for its share of American Family Field. State Senator Julian Bradley says the tweaks are better, but he says the state is still paying too much. State Senator Steve Nass says taxpayers across Wisconsin are being set up to lose on the ballpark. The top Republican in the Wisconsin Senate wants to vote on the ballpark plan next week.
