SPORTS ON THE BALLOT, II: MINNESOTA APPROVES AMENDMENT
Published November 5, 1997
Minneapolis voters "overwhelmingly approved a city charter amendment that will limit how much city officials can spend on pro sports facilities," including a new Twins ballpark, according to Jay Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. The amendment, which would limit city spending at $10M unless approved in a referendum, passed 70%-30%. But the "swift response" to the vote was that St. Paul "might be the site of choice" for the Twins, "if the Legislature can ever come up" with a funding plan. MN Gov. Arne Carlson called Tuesday's vote an "impediment to the stadium going to Minneapolis" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 11/5).
