MINNESOTA SET TO TAKE UP FINAL ACTION TO KEEP TWINS
Published January 6, 1998
MN State Senator Roy Terwilliger said he expects to announce a new Twins stadium finance package next week which "would limit the stadium's cost to" $250M, include a community ownership component and rely on user fees, according to Weiner & Whereatt of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Weiner & Whereatt also report that MN's Attorney General's office has begun examining the legal means to keep the Twins in the state. Lawyers in the office reportedly have been "contacting attorneys general in other states to brainstorm on possible actions to take against baseball's federal antitrust exemption" (STAR TRIBUNE, 1/6).
