The city of St. Louis' April ballot will not include a Major League Soccer stadium funding question, according to the legislation's sponsor.
Alderwoman Christine Ingrassia wrote on Twitter a proposed use tax to help build the $200 million stadium won't be up for vote on the April ballot.
Jim Kavanaugh, a potential owner of a St. Louis MLS team through the SC STL group, said if the legislation doesn't move forward, the MLS stadium could be a casualty.
