St. Louis aldermen get plan for city's share of stadium

Written by Muleskinner Staff

(ST. LOUIS, AP) — About two-thirds of St. Louis taxes generated by a new NFL stadium would go to the team that plays there, according to legislation sent from the office of Mayor Francis Slay to aldermen.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( ) reports that mayoral aides and members of Gov. Jay Nixon’s stadium task force on Tuesday rewrote key financial provisions of the bill before sending it Wednesday to the Board of Aldermen. The goal is a funding plan that will, in combination with NFL funds and money from the owner, build a new stadium along the Mississippi River.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke wants to move to Los Angeles, perhaps as early as next season. Stadium supporters would seek to lure another team if the Rams move.
