Jackson State University says building a domed stadium would create nearly $65 million in personal income and more than $7 million in revenue for the school in its first year of operation.

The Clarion-Ledger reports the claim was made in an economic impact analysis released Thursday by the university.

David Hoard, Jackson State vice president of institutional advancement, said the study shows a domes stadium would be an economic development engine for the community.

The analysis was performed by the state College Board based on data provided by Jackson State.

A bill that would have provided $75 million in bonds for construction on the stadium died in a legislative committee Feb. 27, the same day Hoard announced the project's $200 million price tag.
