Great Debate! Stadium Legislation Advances Through Senate

Posted by Mike Wobschall on May 8, 2012 – 10:43 pm

For the second consecutive night, a huge step was taken at the State Capitol toward reaching resolution on the long-standing stadium issue.

Stadium legislation passed the Minnesota Senate by a 38-28 margin late Tuesday evening. Passage in the Senate on Tuesday followed passage in the House of Representatives on Monday evening by a 73-58 margin.

Tuesday night’s result sets the stage for the conference committee portion of the process. Several amendments were attached to both the House and Senate bills, and the conference committees will reconcile the bills.
