Republicans propose spending $614M in public funds on Milwaukee Brewers’ stadium upgrades

  • Legislative Republicans propose a $700 million plan to cover maintenance and repairs at Milwaukee's American Family Field and ensure the Brewers stay in Wisconsin until 2050. State taxes from baseball players and team personnel would contribute most of the funding, with additional contributions from the city, county, and the team itself.
  • The proposal will require legislative approval, and a vote is expected in October. It also includes $100 million from the Brewers and fixed costs from the city and county, totaling about $200 million.
  • The proposal focuses on stadium repairs and winterizing for events, and it aims to keep the Brewers in Wisconsin after team management warns they might leave without funding for stadium repairs. The plan is seen as a more conservative alternative to Democratic Governor Tony Evers' proposal.
