House passes MSFA reforms

Legislation to reform the scandal-plagued Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority passed the Minnesota House today 122–7.

Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Anderson sponsored the bill that would require two luxury suites previously used by the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) members to be auctioned off. If the MSFA wanted to use them for marketing purposes, the entire board would need to approve that use in an open meeting, she said. Her bill also would increase the size of the board from five to seven and eliminate the paid chair position. The board would hire the executive director, whose salary would be capped.

“Just because you got appointed to the board doesn’t mean you won the lottery,” Anderson said, adding that board members would be paid a per diem, but wouldn’t receive free entry to games.
