Sign the petition and tell lawmakers to stand up for taxpayers.
Public investment in sports never earns a win for taxpayers. Just ask New Jersey or Connecticut residents who paid millions for baseball stadiums that now stand vacant.
In Virginia, principled members of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors warded off a bad stadium deal in 2017 that would’ve cost taxpayers upwards of $35 million.
Taxpayer money should never be used to fund special interest handouts and there is no place for this type of stadium welfare in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Shiny new stadiums might sound exciting, but politicians and teams too often rely on taxpayers to pay for them, and too often these stadiums prove to be bad investments.
Sign the petition to tell your elected officials to stand up for you, the taxpayer, and oppose stadium welfare in Virginia.
