Pataki Commits to Full State Funding for Arena

In another victory for Bruce Ratner, New York Governor George Pataki has let it known that he will find the final $34 million needed for infrastructure improvements around the new Nets arena and mini-city in Brooklyn. The state senate and assembly have already authorized, with minimal opposition, $66 million. Both the state and New York City had committed to spend $100 million for the improvements.
