Twins Stadium & Education Funding


What does the new Twins stadium have to do with education funding? Plenty says Representative Ann Lenczewski. The Twins stadium was funded through a sales tax in Hennepin county. There was no local referendum on the sales tax because the legislature made an exemption for the Twins stadium because it was needed. Representative Lenczeweski argues the same exemption should be made for school levies because schools need the money.
