The Vikings Stadium bill only needs to pass a floor vote in the senate and get signed by the Governor for it to become a reality.  The Minnesota House voted 71-60 early Thursday morning in favor of a revised stadium bill.  The revised bill was constructed in a conference committee and requires the Vikings to pay $50 Million more while the state pays $50 Million less.  The Vikings will now pay a total of $477 Million while the state and city of Minneapolis will combine to pay $498 Million.  The Vikings agreed to the increase in payment.

The house vote happened at 3:30am Thursday so the senate must wait 12 hours before they can vote on the issue.  The vote from the Senate is expected after 3:30 this afternoon.  The Governor is expected to sign the agreement.
