Special Session On Twins' Stadium Issues May Be Fading
September 7, 2005, 4:23 PM
WILLMAR, Minn. (AP) - The chances of the Legislature addressing a new Minnesota Twins' stadium may be fading along with the team's playoff hopes.
Senate Majority Leader Dean Johnson says holding a second special session right now would be "very difficult."
Last month Johnson had called for a special session to deal with a handful of issues including Twins and Gopher stadiums, a new hospital in Maple Grove and pubic employee pensions.
But Governor Pawlenty and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle suggested any special session should come after Labor Day.
Johnson says he recently spoke to Twins president Jerry Bell, who told Johnson he fears if a special session isn't held this fall, a stadium bill won't be on the 2006 agenda.
