Evers’ spokeswoman did not return Empower Wisconsin’s request for comment.
Kelly said the Department of Administration has voiced some concern about the timing, and he said the Milwaukee Brewers “were not terribly happy we ended the tax.” While the Stadium District and the Legislature insist the tax has taken in enough money, the Brewers disagree.
“If the Brewers had concerns, they had 11 months to voice them,” Kelly said.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) on Thursday signed the bill cover sheet, which released the bill for Evers’ consideration.
“It’s with great pride that I was able to take the final legislative step to officially end the Miller Park Tax. I’ve been fighting to make this happen since I began serving in the state Assembly in 2005,” Vos said in a statement. “In fact, I authored a bill (2007 Assembly Bill 941) twelve years ago to sunset the tax. I’m glad that we’re finally seeing the end of the sales and use taxes in 2020 and that excess revenues will be returned to the counties where they were collected.”
