MN GOVERNOR STILL WANTS HOCKEY IN THE TWIN CITIES

     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).
