From "Here We Build" to "Here We Buy." The Kings are vowing to keep some more arena money local.
The team says it will buy enough local materials for the arena project to generate a million dollars worth of sales taxes in Sacramento.
Those taxes will come from early, big buys of steel, seating glass and audio-visual equipment.
A team spokesman says this illustrates a commitment to the city.
They've told the principal contractor to make the most of a state law passed in 1999 that allows construction companies to set their taxable addresses as their current work site.
The million dollars figure assumes that $100 million in materials will be purchased.
