Public funding for a new stadium for the Atlanta Falcons may not be a given. As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:
Amid stiff public resistance to partial public funding of a new Atlanta Falcons stadium, top state leaders say the team needs a better game plan if it expects to win crucial legislative support this winter.
“It’s hard to get lawmakers to vote for something that’s polling 70-to-30 no,” Gov. Nathan Deal told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “They need to directly communicate with the public. Either way the public attitude has to be significantly changed from where it is now.”
Which is encouraging indeed for those that want to end handouts to the millionaires and billionaires in big-time pro sports.
