ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A bill to help fund renovations to Scottrade Center passed through an aldermanic committee Wednesday evening.

The Ways and Means Committee voted to advance the bill, which has been delayed several times.

The Blues are asking for $70 million in city money to help renovate the building, which some say needs to be modernized to attract big events such as NCAA tournament games to St. Louis. Others say public money should be devoted to efforts such as fighting crime.

The bill will be considered by the full Board of Aldermen on Friday.
