Dayton to Sign Vikings Stadium Bill on Monday

Minnesota Vikings

ST. PAUL (AP) — Tomorrow will be another big day at the Capitol for Vikings fans — as Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton signs the stadium bill into law.

Dayton has been one of the biggest cheerleaders for the new $975 million project, which won final legislative approval Thursday after years of failed attempts.

The legislation commits the state to raising $348 million by allowing electronic pull-tabs and bingo in bars and restaurants. There are also backup funding measures such as a lottery game and luxury suite taxes.

Dayton plans to sign the bill at a noon ceremony at the Capitol. Minnesota Vikings owners, bill authors and leaders from the labor and business community will be on hand.
