Reason #402 - $500 Million to Spend
Today's Plain Dealer asks what the $500 million in additional sales tax could be used for if the medical mart-convention center plan falls apart. The answer is, and has been for the last two years, right here - add roofs to the Indians and Browns stadiums to turn them into year-round attractions and economic growth drivers. Total cost of about $200 million, which means $300 million left over for schools, wind farms, green technology, tax rebate, etc.
