Stadium heads to Senate vote today
The largest single construction project Minnesota officials ever have considered goes in front of the state Senate today.
A $975 million plan to build a new Vikings stadium may face tougher opposition in the Senate after it passed surprisingly easily in the House.
Senate Republican spokesman Steve Sviggum said it appears like it will be a long debate and end with a close vote. The Minnesota House approved the plan 73-58 late Monday after eight and a half hours of debate.
