Sacramento has some interesting questions to answer. How much city tax dollars should be used to fund a new arena? Would a new downtown arena provide enough tax dollars and new jobs to cover the costs? Should governments be in the business of enticing sports teams to move to their cities and provide tax incentives to do so? A new 70-member commission named "Here We Build" will release a report in September outlining the feasibility of a new downtown arena.
- Should Sacramento try to keep the Kings with a new downtown arena?
- Should tax dollars be used for the new arena?
- In general, do cities and states benefit from having sports franchises and, if so, what should they do to keep them?
