Twins Win Round One For New Downtown Stadium Minneapolis

The Hennepin County Board has voted in favor of a revised deal for a new Twins stadium that pushes the overall cost to about 522 million dollars.

The proposal for the 42,000 seat stadium in downtown Minneapolis was approved 4-to-3.

The proposal now goes to the state Capitol. The House Tax Committee is scheduled to hear the proposal this week.

The county would contribute 392 million dollars toward construction using a countywide sales tax. The Twins would pay 130 million dollars
