Minnesota House Says No to Differential

Treatment with Respect to Alcohol in

The House That Bob Built

at the University of Minnesota

I've posted on this recently. Please see:

Beer, Chardonnay, or Both? Alcohol in the House that Bob Built Issue Resurfaces

Today's Strib reports that the issue was decisively decided, hopefully for good:

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota House has rejected a move to ease booze restrictions at the University of Minnesota's campus football stadium.

The vote was 111-18 on an amendment to a higher education bill on Monday.

Democratic Rep. Phyllis Kahn's proposal would have reversed a law requiring alcohol to be sold throughout TCF Bank Stadium or not at all. Her amendment would have let the university control where alcohol is available, potentially offering drinks in premium seats and suites.
