PRCA-New Mexico

It looks like the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association is staying in Colorado Springs and not taking 17 million dollars in incentives to move to New Mexico.

The PRCA board announced the reversal yesterday.

The organization says the decision was prompted by the unwillingness of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy to also move.

The Hall of Fame's board unanimously voted Monday to table the idea.

When the PRCA announced in February it would move to New Mexico, officials said the Hall of Fame also would relocate.

New Mexico's financial offer specified both must move.

Meanwhile, the PRCA says there's no word on whether it'll accept Colorado Springs' counter offer to stay, which Mayor Lionel Rivera says includes tax-exempt bonds to improve its existing complex or build a new one.
