Taxpayers would spend $600 million on renovations to the Brewers’ ballpark | Brasarr

A plan unveiled Monday would spend about $600 million in state and local cash on American Family Field renovations over nearly 30 years, with the Milwaukee Brewers pledging $100 million.

That would require approval from the Republican-controlled Legislature and Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, as well as their counterparts in Milwaukee County and the city of Milwaukee — where several elected officials oppose local stadium spending. This increases the possibility of further negotiations before a final agreement is reached.

At stake is whether the Brewers will stay in Milwaukee after the team’s lease on the publicly owned stadium expires at the end of 2030, said Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester.
