Adam Hoffer, director of excise tax policy at the Tax Foundation in La Crosse, joined La Crosse Talk PM on Tuesday to discuss the threat from the MLB commissioner that the Brewers could leave Milwaukee if they don’t get some $500 million in stadium funding, while Green Bay legislators want $2 million from taxpayers for hosting NFL draft.

We dove into the continuing trend of billionaire owners wanting millions in taxpayer dollars to fund stadiums, as well as whether there is an economic benefit to a city for hosting a pro team.
We also discussed ways money used in Green Bay to host the NFL draft could benefit the city.
