A bill that allows the University of Minnesota to sell beer and other alcoholic beverages in premium seating areas of TCF Bank Stadium is headed for a vote in the Minnesota Senate.
The Senate Finance Committee endorsed the measure today on a voice vote. It would reverse a law passed last year that required the university to serve alcohol throughout the entire stadium or not at all. U of M officials opted for a total ban.
The bill requires the university to use the profits from alcohol sales to fund athletic scholarships.
