Final Bucks Stadium Proposal No Deal For Wisconsin Taxpayers
Taxpayers Shouldn’t Have To Fund Private Sports Stadiums

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 Bucks 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.”
