MSFA reform bill passes House committee 17–1

The Minnesota House Government Operations Committee voted in favor of a bill that would restructure the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority after their U.S. Bank stadium luxury suites scandal.

Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The House Government Operations Committee endorsed the bill after a presentation from one of the sponsors, Rep. Sarah Anderson, R–Plymouth, about the Legislature’s goal of exercising more control over the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) in the aftermath of reports that commissioners and staff at the agency were using two taxpayer-owned luxury suites to entertain family and friends since the stadium opened Aug. 3.
