Minnesota legislature approves new stadium for Twins

Early in the morning Sunday, the Minnesota State Senate approved a $522 million deal to build an outdoor stadium in downtown Minneapolis. The financing for the stadium will come from a sales tax increase for residents of Hennepin County (which contains Minneapolis, but not St. Paul.)

The University of Minnesota will also get a new outdoor stadium in Minneapolis, while the Vikings appear headed to suburban Blaine, in Anoka County, but the Minnesota legislature is not going to act on that proposal until next year.

The Legislature was meeting late because it is required by law to adjoun on Monday and cannot pass legislation on the last day.

Part-time state legislatures! This Californian finds the idea of them so quaint. Where I come from, the state legislators meet all year round and pass all sorts of crazy stuff. And we like it! Well, actually if we don't like it, we make up for it by putting incredibly complicated pieces of legislation on the ballot for the voters to throw a dart at to decide.

I guess the Vikings won't be moving to LA? It will be nice to be rid of the dome.

The Dome won't be demolished. Merely deflated.
