Nebraska football generates and insane amount of tax dollars for the state of Nebraska, I would think the state would want to help maintain that cash flow.

One must think about the revenues that a husker football games bring into the city of Lincoln. Only makes sense that they would help keep the facilities tip-top. CLaude

I think it's safe t say the the majority of households in Nebraska support the Football program. Spread equally across the state, I can't imagine that the needed/wanted taxes per household would be that much. I could be wrong. I haven't researched it.

The building is an economic power house for the state.

Why not. Money gets spent in a lot worser ways.

Do like other cities do and charge a tax on hotels and car rentals and let the visitors pay the tax to fund the stadium projects

Modern Monetary Policy. Initiative is already approved and people are paid. Our tax.money won't pay either way, unless you want to wait another 100 years.

Revenue by athletic dept should pay for it. First of all, I dont approve of the south end zone change, eliminating seating for the common folk.

The football program is always bragging about how much they bring in. Why should any non fan have to support them?

Our taxes are too high already and it is because they pay for more than just essential services. Like football stadiums.

The Athletic Department turns a huge profit every year. They charge an insane amount of money to see a terrible product on the field. The egos/decisions of administration has already taken enough from the average person. They don't deserve a dime

We are overtaxed already. I love NU football, but if it can't pay for itself with current state support to the university, then it shouldn't be so big. We are blessed to have the support for the university football team, leave it to the folks.

Only if they are going to expand seating capacity. If they are renovating to "enhance" the experience, let the donor pick up the tab.

With ever more dismal seasons I would guess that filling the stadium would be a problem. Nebraska fans are great, but there is only an indefinite time before they lose interest with dismal season results.

Absolutely not. This is NOT what our Founding Fathers had in mind, not that they are not turning in their graves with this socialist mess we've gotten ourselves into. I don't play football, I don't/can't go to the games and so this is taxation without representation.

The collected taxes should be used to invest in the state of Nebraska's college students to reduce tuition and fees, improve rural health care, and/or invest in things like expanding renewable energy sources. Let the boosters and fans pay for the renovations and upgrades.

The University and it's Mega-donors are not in a state of poverty. When the legislature is in attack mode on taxation, let us be prudent.

There is plenty of private money to take care of this. Just let them name a restroom after a large donor.

Better coverage. Some point they'll figure out how to use the cell phones to enhance the game day experience. Perhaps they could take food/drink orders via phone.

If it's going to cost NU $30 mil, our phones work fine enough as is. Watch the game & spend $ elsewhere. But, if Verizon, etc are flipping the bill and the athletic department has lease agreements lined up to make the school $ as claimed, I would have to say why not and move my vote to the yes side.

I go to watch a game, not chat with someone on my phone. It's just like the gym; waiting for a machine or weight stand while someone using said apparatus talks on their phone.

I'm sick of seeing people with their head down in their phone and living in a little bitty world of trivial nonsense. Be at the game or don't come to the game.
