Vikings Bill Moves in Senate, House Push Next

Minnesota Vikings

ST. PAUL  (AP) — The Minnesota Senate’s Rules Committee has kept the Vikings stadium bill moving and it could be up for a vote by the full Senate before the week is out.

The Rules Committee voted Monday to bypass normal Senate rules and keep the stadium bill alive past standard committee deadlines. One Senate committee moved the bill forward late last week and another is due to review it on Tuesday morning.

A spokesman for Senate Republicans says he expects it could be up for debate and vote on the Senate floor by Thursday or Friday.

The House version of the stadium bill has been stalled in that chamber since last week but could be revived Monday evening in that chamber’s Ways and Means Committee.
