$75 million is a lot less than $300 million, which was how much Clay Bennett wanted for the Renton arena. But, how much is it compared to the stadiums and public financed sports venues the legislature helped finance last year?
Can't you see the beauty in that?
Last year's session saw the financing of a horse venue in Lewis County and a new hockey arena in Kent and a community theater down in Longview. I couldn't find hard numbers for all three projects, but the financing for the hockey arena comes to $30 million public dollars.
$30 million for a minor league hockey arena and no $75 million for Key?
