But Sen. Julie Rosen, R-Fairmont, a sponsor of the 2012 Stadium Act, said the issue of Minneapolis using a sales tax to repay state bonds was thoroughly discussed and verified as legal before the measure was passed. “The Minneapolis City Attorney and all the others gave us the go ahead,” she said.

The new Vikings stadium will be built on the east end of downtown Minneapolis. Demolition of the Metrodome is already underway. On Jan. 18, power will be cut off and the Dome’s roof deflated. After that, the stadium’s structure will be dismantled.
