"I'm more concerned than I was before the hearing," said Rep. Joe Atkins, DFL-Inver Grove Heights, after the House Commerce Committee - which he chairs - met to review the recent rollout of the electronic pull-tab games in bars and restaurants.
Tax revenue from those games is supposed to fund the state's $348 million share of the $975 million Vikings stadium slated for downtown Minneapolis. But the tax revenue from the games, which started to become available in September, fell short of projections by $18 million through the end of 2012: while $35.2 million was projected to come in, the games returned only $17.2 million in tax revenue.
THE FOOL JOE ATKINS IS TALKING ABOUT PEANUT-SIZED MONEY WHEN TO GET THE UNITED STATES ECONOMY GOING AGAIN IT WILL TAKE TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
OLD JOSE THE INCOMPETENT HERE SHOULD HAVE THE PEOPLE MEET HIM AT THE GOVERNMENT DOORS FOR A REAL QUICK TRIAL FOR TREASON--ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE MINNESOTA LEGISLATIVE SCOUNDRELS--AND TAKEN CARE OF SO THE COUNTRY MOVES OUT THE DEAD WOOD INTO HISTORY WHERE THEY BELONG PAVING THE WAY FOR FRESH AND MEANINGFUL ECONOMIC REFORMS.
