Stadium Votes in the Senate

Just like in the House, the majority of Minneapolis State Senators voted against the stadium bill.

Voting yes:

Linda Higgins
Ken Kelash

Voting no:

Scott Dibble
Kari Dziedzic
Jeff Hayden
Patricia Torres Ray

Again, if this is a good deal for Minneapolis, why couldn't stadium boosters convince two thirds of our senate delegation to vote for it?

The numbers are now in, and they're not pretty:

House: nine out of eleven opposed.

Senate: four out of six opposed.

Council: six out of thirteen opposed.

Maybe the stadium deal really is a bad idea for Minneapolis residents?
