New Bucks arena financing debate


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett says a new arena for the city's N-B-A team is a possibility, but he doesn't want Milwaukee to pay for it alone.

Barrett said he can't support a plan to have financing from only Milwaukee or Milwaukee County.

There is some precedent here: back in 1996, tax dollars from five counties were used to build Miller Park.

But critics say there's more interest in the Brewers than the Bucks.

The Bucks organization has not commented.
