MN GOVERNOR STILL WANTS HOCKEY IN THE TWIN CITIES
Published September 21, 1995
MN Gov. Arne Carlson said yesterday that he still supports a plan to help the prospective owners of the Jets hockey team if they move them to Minnesota, according to Jay Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE. Carlson said he didn't want any assistance "sold as a subsidy," reportedly referring of "a tax- rebate concept that received limited support in the Legislature in May." Under that plan, prospective owners Richard Burke and Steve Gluckstern "would have been given the income taxes Jets' players would have paid to the state" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 9/21).
