Final Buck Stadium Proposal No Deal For Wisconsin Taxpayers

Taxpayers Shouldn't Have To Fund Private Sports Stadiums

By - Jun 4th, 2015 05:38 pm

MADISON, Wis. — Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin reacted with disappointment upon news of the final deal to build a new stadium for the Milwaukee Bucks by providing $250 million worth of financing on the backs of Wisconsin taxpayers.

Americans for Prosperity State Director David Fladeboe reiterated his opposition again releasing the following statement:

“Our position remains unchanged: the new Buck stadium proposal is still a bad deal for Wisconsin taxpayers. Government shouldn’t be in the business of financing private sports stadiums. The current deal is based on fuzzy math, complicated accounting and millions of taxpayer dollars.  Whether it comes from the state, the county, the city or other authority, these are taxpayer dollars.  This proposal needs to be rejected and the people of Wisconsin need to be protected.”
