The article reports on the transfer of the financing plan for Major League Baseball's Twins to the Minnesota Senate after the House in Chicago easily passed a plan that does not require Hennepin County to hold a referendum on a sales tax increase needed to repay a stadium bond issue. An amendment that would have allowed voters to weigh in on a sales tax increase through a ballot measure failed narrowly in a 64-66 vote.
