Vikings Stadium Public Hearings 17 Nov 11

The Minnesota Senate has scheduled two public hearings on a proposed Vikings stadium — on November 29th and December 6th. The time, location and agenda are yet to be announced but it’s assumed the hearings will be at the State Capitol. Vikings stadium bill sponsor, Fairmont Republican Julie Rosen, says Senate Republican leaders are taking a “bold and necessary step to engage the public at an important time.” Governor Dayton wanted a special session before Thanksgiving to pass a stadium package but Republican legislative leaders weren’t interested.
