milw-brewersMADISON – Today, Legislative Republicans announced new legislation with the Milwaukee Brewers that would spend ~$700 million to keep the Milwaukee Brewers in Wisconsin until 2050. Senate Democratic Leader Melissa Agard (D-Madison) released the following statement on the plan:

melissa-agard“In February, Governor Evers put forward a fiscally responsible plan to utilize our historic surplus and keep the Brewers in Milwaukee. I remain committed to the Governor’s goal of ensuring the Brewers remain here in our state, however, the Republican plan put forward today falls short. While I am happy to sit down in a bipartisan manner to work out the details, any plan cannot place too great of a burden on the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County.

“There are opportunities here for a bipartisan bill to keep the Brewers our home team, and I am hopeful we can get to a place where the legislation includes both Democratic and Republican support.”
