SALT Report 3721 – The Brown County Stadium District Tax will end on September 30, 2015. The tax levied a 0.5 percent sales tax on virtually anything purchased in the county since early 2001, bringing in an average of $20 million a year since. Voters approved the tax 53-47 percent in September 2000. More than $300.3 million has been collected since, paying for the initial renovation project of Lambeau Field, plus funding stadium operations and maintenance into 2031. However there is still a surplus totaling $17 million. State Rep. David Steffen, R-Howard, proposed a bill that would distribute the money throughout the state, he hopes to have a vote on the bill in October 2015.
