Fact check: Walker embellishes taxpayers’ return on Milwaukee arena

When Milwaukee’s newest sports arena opened last month, Gov. Scott Walker promised that state taxpayers would earn a rich return — of nearly 3 to 1 — on their investment in the $524 million Fiserv Forum, where NBA games will be played. But AP News checks Walker’s numbers and math and comes to a different conclusion.

Walker says he’s looking at all factors surrounding potential Fiserv aid


Gov. Scott Walker says he’s “looking at” whether Fiserv, a large Brookfield company, should still get up to $12.5 million in state taxpayer assistance now that the firm has purchased naming rights to the new Milwaukee Bucks arena. > Wisconsin Public Radio
