White Earth offers stadium $400 million in exchange for casino rights

Email

The White Earth Nation proposes giving the state $400 million for a Vikings stadium in exchange for permission to build a Twin Cities casino.

"Minnesota will have the money and the Vikings will be able to proceed in a timely manner," White Earth Chairwoman Erma Vizenor told reporters this morning.

However, the money would come only after a casino receives final approval, which might not come until after a lengthy court challenge.
