Enclosed Sports Arena Statutes and Rules

The Minnesota Enclosed Sports Arena Rule was enacted in 1973 to protect the public from exposure to exhaust emissions that can occur in ice arenas. In 1977, this rule was amended to include all enclosed sports arenas when other types of internal combustion engines are being used. The rule is enforced by the Minnesota Department of Health.
