Senator Fitzgerald Reacts to Arena Package Announcement

[Madison, WI]   Earlier today, the Milwaukee Bucks organization unveiled proposed designs for an arena package to be constructed in the city’s Park East corridor. Senator Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) released the following statement:

“Today’s announcement from the Bucks further underscores the idea that the proposal to construct a new arena facility in Milwaukee is not just about the future of the team, but has much larger ramifications for the potential revitalization of the city of Milwaukee, and the ensuing benefits to the state of Wisconsin.

We are very encouraged by the plans released at today’s announcement, and will continue to work with all of the necessary parties to reach a funding agreement that protects Wisconsin’s taxpayers by keeping this important economic engine in our state.”
