Banaian, Gottwalt Question Latest Vikings Proposal [AUDIO]
ST. CLOUD – Two St. Cloud lawmakers are skeptical of the Vikings stadium proposal that was unveiled yesterday (Thursday). The plan backed by Governor Mark Dayton, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, and the Vikings owners would build a $975 million stadium near the site of the Metrodome. The state would pay for it’s portion with electronic pull tabs.
However, State Representative King Banaian says he still has a lot of questions.
Meanwhile, State Representative Steve Gottwalt says, even with this latest development, they’re running out of time. They have only two weeks to introduce a bill, and get it through all of the policy committees, in order for it to stay alive this session.
Gottwalt says he wants the issue to be tabled until the next Legislative session.
