MILWAUKEE - Miller Park took in slightly less money in 2012 from sales tax than the previous year.

In 2011, the district reportedly received a total of $25.9 million in sales tax distributions compared with  $25.8 million in 2012.

The 0.1% sales tax began in 1996.

It's collected in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Waukesha and Washington counties.

The sunset sales-tax revenue was committed to the construction and financing of Miller Park.

Last year, consultants said the tax could end in 2017.
