The revised bill was constructed in a conference committee and requires the Vikings to pay $50 Million more while the state pays $50 Million less. The Vikings will now pay a total of $477 Million while the state and city of Minneapolis will combine to pay $498 Million. The Vikings agreed to the increase in payment.
