MSFA suite guests served $32k of taxpayer-funded food

The two suites at U.S. Bank Stadium owned by the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority served $32,120 of food at taxpayer expense.

Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

House Government Finance Committee Chairwoman Sarah Anderson, R-Plymouth, said Tuesday she will seek reimbursement for the food cost when her committee delves into the MSFA operation and use of the suites.

Anderson commented on a 27-page document sent by the MSFA in response to questions last month from her, Senate Finance Chairwoman Julie Rosen, R-Vernon Center, and Sen. Mary Kiffmeyer, R-Big Lake.

Anderson and Rosen, who was a sponsor of the 2012 legislation that got the stadium built with nearly $500 million in public money, say they will lead Republican efforts to examine the MSFA’s operations this session.
