Panel passes measure that aims at helping Field of Dreams expansion


A House Subcommittee has approved incentives designed to spark a $38 Million expansion to the Field of Dreams.

Plans included 24 baseball diamonds and an indoor training facility. Investors also want to preserved the site of the 1989 movie.

Under the measure, the state would allow a 10-year exemption from state sales taxes. Backers say the project would create nearly 1,000 jobs and attract tourists. Investors say they aren't seeking state money and there's no risk to the state if the project fails.
