(MADISON) – Today, the State Assembly passed Senate Bill 209, also known as the Bucks Arena bill, by a vote of 52-34. The Assembly’s action concurs with the State Senate’s action, which codifies a funding package to will keep the Milwaukee Bucks in Wisconsin. The bill now heads to Governor Walker. Following the vote, Senator Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee) released this statement:

“Today is a great day for Wisconsin’s economy. The Milwaukee Bucks mean big bucks not just for Milwaukee, but for our entire state. In the Walker economy, the people of Milwaukee have had little to cheer about lately. This deal will put cranes in the sky, jobs on the ground and more money in the state coffers to fund things like public schools. This deal was one of the most bipartisan deals of this legislative session. That just goes to show that when Democrats and Republicans work together, Wisconsin wins.”
