House to vote on stadium tomorrow

Last night, the House Ways and Means Committee passed the Twins stadium proposal by another close vote. The full House is going to hear the bill tomorrow.

If I had to wager, I would say that it will pass: it is too easy for legislators not living in Hennepin County to vote for it. At least to them, free stadium! I don't know what the backlash will be. Certainly, I see the four county commissioners who voted for the plan facing strong challenges. Beyond that, it's anybody's guess.

They are crazy we are still being taxed on the last stadium now we are going to build a new one and what? it will be obsolete in 30 years and then what will we get taxed for a new one and still pay the tax on this one. Don't forget this one when we get to vote this fall, vote out anyone who voted for the stadium. they can all leave Minnesota for all I care. I am tired of millionares holding the state randsom for stadiums. The U of M tries to trade an echo disaster for theirs, more money that we the tax payers will get to pay out of our pocket.

Don't kid yourself - the dome wasn't even 20 years old when both the Twins and the Vikings started making noise about it.
Some version of this bill will pass, despite opposition by about 2/3rds of the residents of the state.
I suggest getting a calling/email campaign going. Jam their phone lines with angry, voting taxpayers, and maybe they'll reconsider.
