Another day of Vikings stadium drama ahead?

Posted by: Mike Kaszuba under Funding, Minnesota governor, Gov. Mark Dayton, Minnesota legislature, State budgets Updated: January 17, 2012 - 8:46 PM

 

For those hungry for all things stadium, Wednesday may be another day of drama over a new home for the Minnesota Vikings.

With Gov. Mark Dayton perhaps ready to comment on where he wants the new stadium built, legislators have scheduled a six-hour meeting late Wednesday to try to resolve the stadium issue. “Maybe longer,” than six hours, joked Sen. Julie Rosen, R-Fairmont, the lead Senate stadium legislation author.

“I’m not sure a final decision will be made [Wednesday], but we are definitely going to make progress,” she added. The long-debated project still lacks a site and a public funding proposal, but supporters are pushing to have a plan in place for the Legislature, which convenes Jan. 24.

Minneapolis and Ramsey County’s Arden Hills are the supposed front runners for the project, and Dayton received nearly a dozen proposals last week suggesting where to build the project and how to fund it.

Minneapolis City Council President Barb Johnson said late Tuesday that there was no indication which way the governor might be leaning. “I haven’t heard a thing,” she said.
