Senate vote to restrict stadium suite use unanimous

The Minnesota Senate unanimously passed a bill that would restrict the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority’s use of suites at U.S. Bank Stadium. The House passed similar legislation in March.

Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

But the bills passed by each chamber differ on key points that will need to be resolved before a version can go to Gov. Mark Dayton’s desk. The issues: the size of the MSFA board, who gets to make the appointments, who gets to use the luxury suites, whether the state should keep both, the handling of reserve cash in the stadium operating funds and what sorts of rules should be in place for the other publicly subdisized sports stadiums.
