Vikings Remain Optimistic On New Stadium 02 Nov 11

Minnesota Vikings officials remain optimistic about getting a deal for a new Vikings stadium, despite Tuesday’s announcement by the governor and legislative leaders that basically eliminates a local sales tax as an option for funding the stadium. The Vikings’ Jeff Anderson says they’ve had a strong partner in Ramsey County and will keep working with them on an Arden Hills site. Meanwhile, lawmakers are looking at other funding options and may still have a special session before Thanksgiving.
