I agree that no state fund should go to the team but does this one guy get to make that decision?


Effectively yes. Tillis is the Speaker of the House and the speaker assigns committees and directs bills to those committees and the committees never even have to take up those bills if they choose not to.

Even if a bill makes it through committee the speaker can just ignore it and never bring it to the floor for a vote.

I worked at the NCGA for 4 years and most of the bills that are filed are never even heard or voted on in committee.

Sounds more like a 'Raleigh is jealous of Charlotte' sort of thing. ;)

Richardson met with the Gov and this Tillis guy about 62 million in state funds.

Thanks for the update. I still think that it is a non-issue in that the Panthers are not going to move to LA over 62 million when their franchise is worth a billion and is very financially stable. Like I said earlier, this issue is more about not giving sports millions when he plans to go after support programs and basic services through entitlement cuts.

Doubling up the tax payers of Mecklenburg and tripling up the PSL owners is a little much. Better have a retractable roof so I can tolerate fan fests 400 degree temps.

SInce Tillis is the representative for Mecklenberg county, many of you can choose to vote him out of office during the next election, if you don't like his stance on the issue.

Would you be willing to fund a Carolina Hurricane stadium with State funds?! I would not. Outside the neighboring counties why would they?

Why would they? Most of the folks in the state aren't panther fans. Every uneducated hick infested town is jealous that we have more Wendy's than they have traffic lights. Why give a beautiful city like Charlotte something they want? Putting an extra elevator in a BOA stadium isn't going to help Billy Bob get out of the mill. It's not going to help Amber pay for her 4 kids out if wedlock and her iPhone.

Now, if the steelers/cowboys/redskins needed money.....I'm sure those inbreds in Maiden, Concord, Statesville, Kinston, or Durham would be more than happy to empty out the $16 in their savings account to help the "home team"
