Banaian, Gottwalt ‘Undecided’ on Stadium Bill [AUDIO]

Minnesota Vikings

ST. PAUL – The Vikings Stadium bill will be voted on by the full House on Monday.

State Representative King Banaian of St. Cloud says he doesn’t support the bill as it’s written now.

Banaian says Minneapolis’ and the state’s combined 57% share of the stadium costs is too high.  He says he plans to introduce some amendments to the bill on the floor on Monday.  One example: right now the Vikings would get 100% of the money from the naming rights to the facility, Banaian wants all parties to get a percentage of the money from naming rights based on the percentage of their costs.

State Representative Steve Gottwalt of St. Cloud says he’s not sure how he’ll vote.

Gottwalt says Governor Dayton and Republican leaders are expected to be tweaking the Vikings stadium bill, as well as the bonding bill, through the weekend.  The tax bill that Governor Dayton vetoed today (Friday) could also be part of the discussion this weekend.
