More Stadium Bills in Minnesota

Bills for two stadiums are going to be put in front of the Minnesota State legislature: one for the Twins (the Twins may be Las Vegas's new honey next week) and one for the Gopher football squad (they aren't going anywhere). Right now the Gophers have the most support because their stadium is cheaper (no roof) and the current proposal calls for the university to raise 60% of the costs on its own.
