New Sports Stadiums approved for Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS -- State lawmakers gave final approval at Sunday to finance an open-air stadium for the Twins, and University of Minnesota football team.

Gov. Tim Pawlenty said he plans to sign the bill, possibly at a Twins game this week.

A new $522-million Twins ballpark, paid for mostly by taxpayers, is scheduled to open in 2010.

The 42,000-seat stadium is earmarked for the west edge of downtown Minneapolis.
