Holberg spoke out against exempting the stadium and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority from the Minnesota Data Practices Act at the time the state House of Representatives passed the bill authorizing state funds for the stadium, the newspaper's Hot Dish Politics blog reported.
State Sen. Dave Johnson (R-Lakeville) also introduced legislation Monday to repeal a warehouse tax the Legislature approved this year. Both bills (and more than 40 others brought up Monday, according to Politics in Minnesota) were symbolic gestures since the special session was devoted to one issue: relief for areas of Minnesota hit hard by July storms.
