MADISON, Wis. — Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin, the state’s foremost advocate for economic freedom, reacted with disappointment upon news that a new deal is in works to provide millions of dollars in taxpayer financing to build a new sports stadium for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Americans for Prosperity State Director David Fladeboe released 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 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.”
