The Assembly today voted to ensure the sales tax created to pay for the Milwaukee Brewers stadium would end in 2020.

The 0.1 percent sales tax on the five-county area — which includes Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington, Waukesha and Racine counties — has been in place in 1996.

Under the bill passed today, that tax would come to an end no later than August 31, 2020.

The Miller Park District Board earlier this year certified the end of the tax by March 2020.

Any excess revenue would be returned to the counties.
