[quote]But it is just fact, as the Forbes article points out, we subsidize them at a very high level compared to many other cities. [/quote] I just reread that forbes article and his definition of subsidy is questionable and some of the commentors called him out on it. I would call him out but ...

re: Taxpayers spend $65 million subsidizing the operation of the Super Dome and SKC - WeeWee
[quote]These venues have a plus effect for the local economy Then let the local government subsidize it instead of the state. [/quote] It is a state owned building. So why shouldn't the state subsidize it? Especially since subsidiy (if you can call a hotel tax to pay for the construction and...

[quote]How did you create this fiction when the OP is about the $65 million subsidy of the Dome operations out of HB1??[/quote] I am just spitballing here because I can't get the LSED's budget to open but based off of the audior's report for FYE14 the LSED had Total government funds of $63,410,60...

re: Taxpayers spend $65 million subsidizing the operation of the Super Dome and SKC - WeeWee
[quote]Every city has a hotel/motel tax and I'd bet money that NO had one before the Saints existed. [/quote] It would be much less than it is right now. 9 of the 13% of the tax goes to the convention center or LSED. I highly doubt that you could have a winning argument for a 13% sales tax witho...

re: Taxpayers spend $65 million subsidizing the operation of the Super Dome and SKC - WeeWee
[quote]I don't pretend to be an account. They termed the expenses to the Saints as Lease inducement payments. That's all I know. I think it's a complicated issue, and it really needs to be studied so people can understand exactly what the deal is with Benson. [/quote] I am not an accounta...

[quote]Do that math WeeWee--the excess rent FAR FAR exceeds anything Benson has ever gotten from the state. Hornets/Pelican deal [/quote] How much has the state's economy benefitted from having the Saints and the Superdome? Do you have to view everything as a positive or negative to the state...

[quote]Legislative Audit report on the Louisiana Stadium Exposition District (LSED) which is the govt. body running the Dome shows that they paid the Saints over 14.4 million dollars for "lease inducement payments" in FYE 2014. It's right there on page 22 (Acrobat page 29) in the state audit. [/...

re: Taxpayers spend $65 million subsidizing the operation of the Super Dome and SKC - WeeWee
[quote]Oh OK, Let me look, I thought the legislature had to support them each year. I stand corrected if they did not.[/quote] Well the legislature has to pay off the cost of building the dome, but that is done through hotel tax. They own the stadium so of course they would have to pay for the co...

[quote]doubleb[/quote] not links to the renovation. I meant links to back up your claim that it can't stand on its own. Besides who cares it brings in more tax revenue to the state than it costs the state. That is standing on its own IMO.[link=(http://www.nola.com/sugarbowl/index.ss...
