ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota House panel is considering temporarily changing state law to let bars stay open until 4 a.m. when the All-Star Game comes to town this July.

The new closing time would pave the way for revelers in Hennepin County to celebrate America's national pastime for two extra hours.

That exception is but one sports-related accommodation lawmakers have in front of them.

Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk told reporters in February that legislators might have to pass a law waiving taxes on football player salaries if Minnesota hosts a Super Bowl. Minneapolis is a finalist for the 2018 Super Bowl that will be awarded in May.
