ST. PAUL, Minn. - A University of Minnesota spokesman says school leaders support a legislative proposal that could bring beer sales to the on-campus football stadium.

But public relations director Chuck Tombarge says it would be up to the school's Board of Regents to decide how to manage any alcohol sales at TCF Bank Stadium.

The Legislature could vote as soon as Friday to send Gov. Mark Dayton a bill allowing liquor sales at the stadium through half-time of collegiate games and during any Minnesota Vikings games held there.

The measure is part of a larger liquor policy bill.

Currently, liquor can't be purchased at the stadium because state law required sales in at least one-third of the stadium or not at all. Regents had hopes of limiting alcohol to premium seating areas.
