CARLSON PUSHES FOR REFERENDUM ON TWINS STADIUM
Published December 22, 1995
MN Gov. Arne Carlson says he will ask the legislature to put an initiative on the November '96 ballot to determine if metro- area voters want to pay for a new ballpark for the club. The Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE reports Carlson's request follows a task force study which concluded that "the retention" of the Twins will require "either additional revenue streams in the Metrodome or a new stadium." Paul Thatcher, Finance Chair for the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission: "I profoundly believe if we don't build a new stadium we will lose baseball." The Twins can exercise an escape clause at the Metrodome after the '97 season (Weiner & Whereatt, Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 12/22).
