An effort to get taxpayers to pay a large chunk of the cost for a new stadium for the St. Louis Cardinals failed during the just concluded legislative session. But, sponsors who pulled the issue from consideration, are not giving up on the matter. Representative Jim Foley of St. Ann says it is now time to regroup and return to Governor Holden with a refined proposal. He says it is important to show the Governor the idea makes good economic sense. Foley insists the state must also consider the economic impact should the stadium not be built and the Cardinals leave St. Louis. The Cardinals’ owners have pledged $100-million toward the $370-million complex and are asking the state to finance the rest.
