House committee approves Saint Paul soccer stadium bill

Legislation that would give tax breaks to the new Minnesota United stadium in Saint Paul passed its first committee in the Minnesota House.

Bill Salisbury of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press:

The bill would grant Minnesota United FC’s request for a property tax exemption for the stadium site at Interstate 94 and Snelling Avenue, plus a sales tax exemption for materials used to construct the $150 million stadium the team plans to build. A team spokesman said the tax provisions are needed to privately finance the structure.

Those are the same tax provisions that the House and Senate approved in a major tax-cut bill last year that Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed for unrelated reasons.
