Today, the Indiana State Senate voted to concur with the House of Representatives version of Senate Bill 7. The bill includes language that would enable a Professional Sports Development Area (PSDA) that would include a multi-purpose soccer stadium. In response, Eleven Park issued the following statement:
With Senate Bill 7 now headed to the Governor’s desk, we are ready to kick off a new era for Indy Eleven professional soccer and the world’s most popular sport in Indiana – with no new taxes and no appropriations from city or state governments.
This is the latest step in the legislative process. With the Governor’s signature, we can continue along the path to fully capturing this one-in-a-generation opportunity to secure the future of the world’s game in our capital city.
Eleven Park is grateful to Senate President Pro Tempore Rod Bray and the bill’s Senate authors; Sen. Ryan Mishler, Sen. Travis Holdman, and Sen. Jack Sandlin, and co-authors; Sen. Jean Breaux and Sen. Jon Ford, and the bill’s House sponsors; Rep. Todd Huston, Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer, Rep. Gregory Porter, and Rep. Dave Heine, all of whom have provided leadership and guidance as the bill has moved through the legislative process.
Senate Bill 7, which includes enabling language for Eleven Park has now passed through the House of Representatives and the State Senate and will become law when it is signed by Governor Eric Holcomb.
