Assembly passes Bucks Arena Deal
The Milwaukee Bucks released the following statement from President Peter Feigin on the Wisconsin State Assembly arena financing vote
“Today, our collective effort to create a world-class sports and entertainment district in the heart of Milwaukee took a monumental step forward thanks to the bipartisan leadership of elected officials in Madison. We’re incredibly grateful for the commitment of state, county and city officials to work together in a historic fashion to help shape this public-private partnership. There’s still work to be done and we look forward to building on this progress with the city and county, but the passage of legislation today makes our future much clearer. The Bucks will not only remain home in Wisconsin, but we’ll soon begin a transformative economic development project that will help revitalize our community and region.”
Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement after the Wisconsin State Assembly gave final legislative approval to Senate Bill 209, the Bucks arena plan.
\"The passage of the arena deal shows that legislators can come together to make the right decisions for the state of Wisconsin.\"
