Ige told us Monday he’s been working on a memorandum of understanding to define the project as a stadium rebuild only and that the stadium authority would be a signatory to the MOU.
But he leaves office Dec. 5, and Gov. Elect Josh Green has told us the public-private-partnership would be the preferred path.

Ige said a new law last session redefined the money for the project as being intended for a stadium only with no PPP and contends the new governor would have to get the law re-written if he wanted to handle it any differently.
Gov. Ige’s office told us that as of this afternoon, no MOU on the stadium has been issued.
