Senator Pogemiller Shows His Hand on the Stadium Scam

Re: Twins stadium proposals, I heard from my State Senator, Larry Pogemiller, who also chairs the tax committee. His letter offered some glimmer of hope.

Here is the money quote:

It is my belief that state-wide funding would be preferable, since they are the Minnesota Twins and not the Hennepin County Twins. If a county sales tax is necessary, it will not have my support without a referendum.

I have to believe he shares those views fully aware that either of those options is a probable deal-breaker at this point.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall during the conference committee.
