Indiana Lawmakers Approve Pacers Funding

Andy Berg Headshot

The Pacers will remain in Indiana after the state senate Tuesday voted 44-4 to approve legislation that would keep the NBA team in the state's capital of Indianapolis for decades. Along with keeping the Pacers, legislators also tentatively removed at least one hurdle in the way for a new soccer stadium for the Indy Eleven.

The bill will now head to the governor’s desk for a signature.

According to the Indy Star, Senate Bill 7 creates funding for the previously announced 25-year deal between the Indiana Pacers and Marion County Capital Improvement Board, which commits roughly $800 million in public spending to keep the team in town.
