Stadium bill survives tough committee fight

Published 04/27/2012, Forum Communications Co.

A Vikings stadium construction plan will receive a full Senate vote after what its Senate author described as a brutal Friday committee hearing lasting more than five hours. Sen. Julie Rosen, R-Fairmont, said she expects the plan to pass the Senate, which may take it up Sunday. “We fought back a lot of lousy amendments,” Rosen said. One of those proposed amendments was by Sen. John Howe, R-Red Wing, who ended up as the swing vote that allowed the Senate Tax Committee to approve the stadium bill 7-6.
