Extractions: STADIUMS FOR THE YANKEES AND METS New York City's government is presently renegotiating stadium leases with its two Major League Baseball (MLB) teams. Any subsidies the city decides to grant the teams-and perhaps the teams' continued presence in the city-will largely be determined by the negotiations. This report seeks to foster public understanding of the economic and budgetary effects of the Yankees and the Mets on the city and estimates the likely fiscal impact of building or completely refurbishing a stadium for each team. Our principal findings are as follows: Research consistently finds that new stadiums do not produce economic growth in metropolitan areas. These results imply that stadiums do not lead to increases in tourism, nor do they serve as a significant attraction to non-retail establishments. To the extent that stadiums benefit the businesses near them, the benefits reflect the expenditures of metropolitan area residents. The location of a stadium within a region does, however, affect local patterns of economic activity. IBO estimates that having the Mets and the Yankees in New York City instead of in the suburbs currently adds up to $300 million, or 0.09 percent, to the city's economic output. This added output annually generates roughly $14 million for the city's treasury-0.04 percent of the total city budget.

Extractions: A Case Of Smarty Jones Fever While Smarty Jones' short-term impact on horse racing is undeniable, entities with ties to the sport hope the effect of a Smarty Jones win at Belmont will be long-lasting. Merchandise sales and exposure around the colt have reached unprecedented levels, but one still wonders whether his triumphs will leave an indelible impression upon the sports landscape. Whatever the case, the upward ratings trend for NBC's Triple Crown races is bound to continue, and the exposure reaped thus far by Visa will only be buoyed if the company hands Smarty Jones' owners a $5M bonus.

Extractions: 10:30 PM CDT on Wednesday, May 5, 2004 By JOSHUA BENTON / The Dallas Morning News Football may be king in Texas, but it might end up getting dinged by the Legislature. One section of the school finance bill given final approval by the House on Wednesday would prohibit the use of state money to construct or improve buildings not used primarily for instruction. That would eliminate state assistance for football stadiums, as well as things such as central administration buildings or transportation facilities. Because only property-poor school districts can receive state funding for such projects, they are the ones that would be affected by the move. Wealthier school districts typically pay for stadiums through bond issues backed by local property taxes. "The districts that can least afford to pay for these facilities are the ones who would be most affected," said Lisa Dawn-Fisher, the Texas Education Agency's assistant director of state funding.
