Vikings Stadium Drive at Minnesota Capitol Gains Steam

Minnesota Vikings

ST. PAUL  (AP) РThe push for Vikings stadium funding at the Minnesota Capitol is regaining steam, less than 24 hours after it appeared to fall apart for the year.

Gov. Mark Dayton met Thursday morning with lawmakers who support a state stadium subsidy. The lawmakers say they plan to introduce a detailed proposal soon and air it in public hearings.

Stadium backer Sen. Julie Rosen says she still wants to settle the issue before the regular legislative session starts in late January. Rep. Morrie Lanning says it’s likely the chief source of state funds will be tax revenue from expanded gambling.

Dayton had lashed out at legislative leaders a day earlier for not backing his drive to resolve the issue before the Vikings’ Metrodome lease runs out in early February.
