Greitens remains opposed to funding St. Louis soccer stadium



     (AP) – After meeting with investors in a proposed St. Louis

soccer stadium, Missouri Gov.-elect Eric Greitens still opposes spending state

money for the project.

     Senior adviser Austin Chambers said Greitens met Wednesday in Jefferson City

with members of the group SC STL.

     The group is seeking to build a $200 million soccer stadium downtown in hopes

of attracting a Major League Soccer expansion team.

     The group wanted $40 million in state tax credits to help fund the project.

     Greitens previously said using state money for the stadium would amount to

“welfare for millionaires.”

     After an “open, frank and constructive exchange,” Austin says Greitens remains

unconvinced.

     The Republican takes office Monday.
