ST. PAUL  (AP) РGov. Mark Dayton and state lawmakers sponsoring a Vikings stadium bill have plans to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to talk about the project.

Rep. Morrie Lanning says Monday the meeting is scheduled for Tuesday morning at the governor’s residence. He says he and Sen. Julie Rosen, his fellow lead sponsor of the stadium proposal, will join Dayton and Goodell.

Lanning says he’ll ask what financial commitment the league might for the stadium construction. The Vikings want backing from lawmakers to help build a $1.1 billion stadium at a suburban site in Ramsey County that would be funded by the team and state and county taxpayers.

Lanning says there is still not a universally accepted figure for how much it will cost to fix roads near the stadium site. That has slowed progress on stadium talks.
