DEAN JOHNSONGame 651 | April 6, 2005 | Dean Johnson, Steve Sviggum
With sports facilities a major topic in the Minnesota Legislature, Senate Majority Leader Johnson and Speaker of the House Sviggum talked about prospects for governmental partnerships with the Gophers, Twins and Vikings. The veteran legislators said that prospects for the Gophers and the Twins, in partnership discussions with Hennepin County, were improving, and that any Vikings deal was going to have to wait for a future session. Nothing was approved in 2005, but both the Twins and Gophers received approval from the 2006 Legislature.
