Gophers stadium plan one step closer

The House Ways and Means Committee approved a Gophers stadium plan that would have the state paying $9.4 million a year for 25 years. It could now conceivably be voted on by the full House, as soon as Thursday.

The bill is not without its detractors. Today on the House floor, where committee reports are usually approved with little fanfare, Republican Phil Krinkie, candidates for the 6th CD, tried to shunt the money to improving the U's research and medical science instead. He failed, however, on a very lopsided vote. Now, that procedural vote probably is not an indicator of the support that the bill itself has, but if it is, the Gophers are in good shape.
