President Murphy schedules committee briefing on arena funding plan

Statement of Common Council President Michael J. Murphy

By - Jun 4th, 2015 05:41 pm

For the most part, the terms of the legislative deal with the Milwaukee Bucks have been negotiated in private. With the announcement that the Governor, the legislative leadership, the Mayor and the County Executive have reached a deal, I have scheduled a special Steering and Rules Committee meeting to allow Common Council members and the public at large to hear details of the proposal from the administration.

This informational meeting will take place tomorrow, Friday, June 5, at 1:30 p.m. in Room 301B of City Hall. It will be carried live on the City Channel and at milwaukee.gov/citychannel.

However, despite today’s announcement, it is still unclear whether the Governor has the votes in the legislature to get the plan approved. If the legislature approves the deal, it will still require approvals from the city, the county and the Wisconsin Center District.

It is my intention that a full and transparent discussion of the details will be aired by the Common Council prior to any vote being taken.
