Do You Want to build a Snowman? How About a Stadium?

If you have kids or grand-kids you know all about Frozen, a very popular animated fictional movie.  The song, “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” is one of the most popular from the movie.  In the song, Anna is soulfully pleading for Elsa to come out and play.

Governor Jay Nixon is working on his own version of Frozen in which he is seeking to build a new NFL stadium for the Rams using taxpayer funds.  His version of the song goes likeDo you want to build a stadium? No? I’m going to do it anyway!

The Governor’s Commissioner of the Office of Administration, Doug Nelson, told the Senate Appropriations Committee that the Governor doesn’t need legislative or taxpayer approval to issue bonds for a new St. Louis Rams stadium. You can imagine the furor that caused.

Yesterday, Senator Ryan Silvey submitted a request to Attorney General Koster for a legal opinion on the Governor’s statement. Click here to read Senator Silvey’s request.

Senator Silvey’s opposition to a new taxpayer funded stadium is representative of the majority of legislators who have spoken out on the issue.  It also mirrors the rejection of the public funded stadium by likely voters in the St Louis region.

    Build the stadium. Don’t let Missouri fall farther behind.

      Missouri will fall further behind if its taxpayers are once again prostituted to pay for a new stadium. The data clearly shows that the only ones who benefit from publicly funded stadiums are the owners of the professional sports teams and their leagues. Taxpayers are left without getting their investment back.
