My brain can’t handle a bunch of political jive this morning, so here’s the dumbed-down version of what’s going to happen Monday night at this hearing at the Minnesota House of Representatives. They’re going to fix it so electronic pull-tabs and bingo can be used to fund the state’s $398 million share of the stadium cost. For full details, read the Pioneer-Press story written by an actual journalist.
Everyone writing about this says the stadium will cross a “major hurdle” at this hearing, but it’s still a long-shot for the bill to pass during the current legislative session. Okay great. Get back to me when they’re ready to break ground. Politics makes my head hurt worse than listening to Rick Spielman talk about the plan.
