New Vikings stadium bill will go to full House vote

Published 04/23/2012, Grand Forks Herald

The full Minnesota House will vote on whether to build a Vikings stadium. Tough questions continue even as the plan to build a stadium gained new life Monday night, a week after another committee rejected it. The Ways and Means Committee amended a stadium construction proposal onto another bill and then approved the full bill. Both decisions came in voice votes, with no official record of how committee members voted. Also Monday, the Senate scheduled a second stadium hearing for its version of the proposal. The Ways and Means decision to bring back the stadium plan sends the proposal to the full House for a likely vote this week. The vote was a complete turnaround from a week earlier, when another committee dealt the stadium plan a 9-6 defeat.
