MADISON, Wis. – Today, Legislative Republicans unveiled their proposal to provide ~$600million in funding to keep the Milwaukee Brewers in Wisconsin. Assembly Democratic Leader Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) and Assistant Democratic Leader Kalan Haywood (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement: 

“Throughout negotiations, Democrats have been optimistic about reaching a deal that keeps the Brewers in Wisconsin. However, the Republican proposal released today falls short of recognizing the regional benefit of American Family Field and places too great of a financial burden on the city and county of Milwaukee. 

“We remain willing to continue conversations and hopeful that a bipartisan agreement can be reached.”
