The controversial 1% county sales tax, enacted into law
a few years back, actually contains provisions for half the
money to go to building infrastructure
including stadiums. (The other
half was to replace a controversial property tax that may
have been unconstitutional).
This money has been used for other projects (perhaps
valid in their own right), and thus there is not enough cash
left to build the stadiums. It is not that this wasn't tried
before - it is just that they need more money. What happens
when this new "1/2%" is not enough?
How much is enough?
