Senate Approves Alcohol Sale at TCF Bank Stadium

ST. PAUL (AP) — The Minnesota Senate has approved a bill that would let the University of Minnesota sell beer to the general public at University of Minnesota football games.

The Senate approved the change Wednesday as part of a larger liquor policy bill that passed on a 58-4 vote. The House plans to take up a companion bill this week.

The measure allows the University Board of Regents to sign off on a liquor license application for TCF Stadium. A school spokesman says the board supports the change.

Last year, the University of Minnesota wanted to limit liquor sales to luxury suites in order to boost those ticket sales while curbing drinking among minor students. But state lawmakers have pushed for more open general sales for several years.
