Yes, There's a Twins Stadium Bill ...
Edina State Sen. Roy Terwilliger to Introduce it Early in Next Session
MINNEAPOLIS, Posted 1:18 p.m. December 07, 1997 -- Yes, there's still a Twins stadium
It just hasn't been introduced yet.
Edina Republican State Senator Roy Terwilliger -- a GOP governor candidate -- says he
plans to introduce another bill outlining how a new Twins stadium should be financed,
Like earlier bills that failed, Terwilliger's calls for user fees paying for
construction and recognizes he has to convince Minnesotans that it's the right way to go.
"We certainly have to do a better job of making certain that people understand
it," Terwilliger told WCCO-Radio. "Because I believe that we had the proposal,
the basic elements of a proposal there before, but it was rushed somewhat."
The mid-November legislative special session ended without passage of a stadium bill
and North Carolina businessman Don Beaver said last week that he is close to completing an
agreement to purchase the Twins.
