Vikings Stadium Bill Could Be Voted On Today In the House
The Vikings are crossing their fingers as the Vikings Stadium bill could be voted on today in the state house. Debating in the Vikings Stadium bill is expected to start today at around 2 or 3 pm. The vote may not happen until early Tuesday morning. The debating of the Vikings Stadium bill may take 10-12 hours. Vikings Vice President for Stadium Development Lester Bagley says the stadium is "within striking distance." Governor Mark Dayton feels as though they have the necessary votes to pass the bill.
A total of 68 votes are needed in the house to pass the bill before it goes to the senate for a vote. Governor Mark Dayton and Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak attended rallies for the Vikings Stadium on Saturday and Sunday.
