Vikings Stadium Bill Passes The House

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings Stadium bill passed the Minnesota House 73-58 in a floor vote Monday night.  Debate on the Vikings stadium started shortly after 2pm and continued until the vote at 10:30pm.  The bill changed with an amendment that added financial responsibility for the Vikings and reduced the financial responsibility for the state.  In this amendment the state would share in revenue from naming rights while in the previous plan the Vikings would have received 100% of the revenue from naming rights.  The Vikings in this amendment would also be responsible for any stadium cost overruns.  The VIkings will pay $532 up front and the state will pay $293 in this new amendment.

The Stadium bill will be discussed in the Minnesota Senate today and either the House bill or their own bill will be discussed and voted on.  A few steps still remain for the Vikings Stadium to become a reality.  Viking Vice President Lester Bagley says he’s encouraged by the progressed they’ve made.
