Minnesota Senate flip-flops on user fee issue
Posted by Mike Florio
For the second time on Tuesday, the Minnesota Senate has added an amendment to the stadium bill, and then dumped it.
It happened earlier in the day with the omission — and then the resurrection — of language nullifying the portion of the Minneapolis City Charter that requires a referendum before more than $10 million in municipal money is given to any sports facility.
Now, according to Pat Kessler of WCCO-TV, the Senate added a deal-killing “user fee” to the bill. And then an hour later they removed it.
Apparently, the Minnesota Senate behaves like a 14-year-old girl picking out a pair of shoes.
The ultimate question is whether they’ll ever pass the bill. And then whether they’ll change their mind an hour later.
