Arizona voters overwhelmingly want the Arizona Coyotes to remain at Gila River Arena, home to the team since the 2003-04 season, and are against spending tax money on a new arena

Sen. Bob Worsley, R-Mesa, and the Arizona Coyotes continue to try and garner the needed votes in the state legislature to get a bill passed to assist the team with tax dollars to build another arena. However, voters are saying enough is enough when it comes to public funding of sports arenas.
The vote was scheduled for a Committee of the Whole calendar Feb. 28, but was removed and has not been rescheduled as of press time.
In an independent survey of registered voters in Arizona, 67.9 percent of state wide and 71.8 percent of Maricopa County responses are “against using taxpayer dollars to finance the arena.”
