A Kansas City Senator strategizes a deal to benefit Kansas City athletics if a St. Louis stadium is built. Rachel Busacker has the story from Jefferson City.

Senator Harry Wiggins, a Democrat from Kansas City, has filed a bill proposing an extra $14 million a year in state money for Kansas City stadium renovations.

Wiggins says that if a stadium is built for the St. Louis Cardinals, then Kansas City deserves something too.
