Committee Meeting on Committee Substitute for Board Bill 219  by Alderwoman Tammika Hubbard (5th Ward), Alderman Jack Coatar (7th Ward), Alderman Ken Ortmann (9th Ward)

Board Bill 219 would authorize a Financing Agreement between City of St. Louis, Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority, and State of Missouri for construction and leasing of a new stadium.

The Ways & Means Committee will likely vote on a Committee Substitute at that time. I am unaware of an actual Substitute posted online anywhere. However, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch did post the New Financing Agreement– meat & potatoes of the financing- which is an Exhibit to the Board Bill. Despite the heading, it is not the new Board Bill, it is part of it.

Members of the BOA Ways & Means Committee include: Alderman Steve Conway (8th Ward), Alderman Chris Carter (27th Ward), Alderman Antonio French (27th Ward), Alderman Terry Kennedy (18th Ward), Alderman Sam Moore (4th Ward), Alderwoman Beth Murphy (13th Ward), Alderman Scott Ogilvie (24th Ward), Alderman Joe Vaccaro (23rd Ward).

Board President Lewis Reed is a voting member of all committees.
