BUSINESS EXECUTIVES REJECT TRI-COUNTY TAX FOR TIGER STADIUM

 BUSINESS EXECUTIVES REJECT TRI-COUNTY TAX FOR TIGER STADIUM
 DETROIT, March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- A survey of more than 1,100 presidents, CEOs and other top business executives in southeastern Michigan shows business executives overwhelmingly oppose a tri-county tax to build a new Tiger Stadium.
 The finding, published in the March 16 edition of Crain's Detroit Business, was part of an annual survey of business executives sponsored by Crain's and the Detroit office of the financial services firm Deloitte & Touche. The annual survey gauges opinion primarily on business climate issues. However, this year, a question about potential stadium financing was added because of the great public interest focused on the issue.
 Detroit voters today (Tuesday, March 17) are facing a ballot proposal that could block the use of Detroit city funds in any new stadium project. However, Wayne County executives last year hinted that they might seek a tri-county tax on certain items or services -- ranging from an additional tax on room nights in hotels and motels to higher taxes on alcohol or cigarettes -- to help finance a new stadium.
 Only 10 percent of the respondents favored such a tax approach. Support was strongest among minority-owned businesses.
