The Minnesota Vikings brought their push for a new stadium to Central Minnesota today (Wednesday). The Vikings Vice President of Public Affairs and Stadium Development Lester Bagley is meeting with local state lawmakers.
Gov. Mark Dayton says he would support letting Ramsey County voters weigh in on a proposed sales tax increase for a new Vikings stadium. Stadium backers have been working on a plan that would not allow voters a say in building a Vikings stadium in Arden Hills.
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton says the new stadium plan presented this year by the Vikings and Ramsey County was "incomplete and unsatisfactory." Dayton's remarks came Wednesday at a news conference to discuss the state budget.
The Minnesota Vikings say they are still working on a proposal for a new stadium in Arden Hills. Vice president Lester Bagley says "a handful of issues" are still being discussed as they work to fine tune the proposal and get it ready for presentation to the Legislature.
