I was not in the room but, the implied threat is very real. When the Governor was the Mayor of Charlotte, he by passed a no vote on the minor league stadium and built it anyway. I have alot of friends in Charlotte and none of them were impressed that he by passed the vote. Most I have talked to do not want to fund this either.
We have schools (state wide) doing without needed resources. We have roads (state wide) in dire need of repair. If the funds are not available for these projects, why/how do they magically appear to subsidize stadiums for private enterprise? I believe 62 million dollars would help the schools and repair quite a few roads........
