Senate Passes Vikings Stadium Bill

Minnesota Vikings

The Viking Stadium bill made more progress late Tuesday night when it passed through the Minnesota Senate floor.  The senate version is different than the house in many ways.  The differences between the house and senate bills need to be resolved in conference committee today or tomorrow before going before the house and senate for final approval.  The major difference in the senate bill include user fees in addition to electronic pull tabs to pay for the state’s portion and a $25 Million increase in financial commitment from the Vikings and a $25 Million decrease from the state.

The House bill asked for a $105 Million increase in financial commitment from the Vikings while the state’s commitment would be diminished by $105 Million.  Viking Vice President Lester Bagley is holding firm that the Vikings don’t approve an increase in financial commitment but is willing to negotiate with state officials.
