St. Louis voters approve limits on sports subsidies

In a referendum bitterly opposed by the St. Louis Cardinals and their part-owner, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 55% of city voters approved a requirement that any city funding for sports facilities needs to go before a public vote. Whether this will affect last month’s decision by the St. Louis board of aldermen to rebate the city’s 5% ticket tax to help pay off a new stadium – a decision made before this week’s vote, and which involves a tax rebate, not a city expense – is still unclear.
