Minnesota state House sets 1/23 hearing to discuss NHL lockout. NHL players among those expected to speak.

Quote:
Atkins said Minnesota House research has indicated that a season-long labor impasse would cost Minnesota $5.86 million in state and local income taxes, sales taxes and alcohol taxes.

The city of St. Paul alone would lose $238,000 in sales tax revenue and $15,800 in liquor taxes with the loss of the Minnesota Wild's season. Those estimates are based on a 2009 study conducted by CSL International, adjusted for inflation and other variables.

Atkins, who will be the new chair of the House Commerce and Consumer Protection Finance and Policy Committee, said the committee will open the floor to players, management, vendors, restaurant servers, bartenders, parking lot attendants and anyone else affected by the ongoing lockout.
