Second Senate Stadium Hearing Today 06 Dec 11

Minnesota state senators are meeting for another Capitol hearing on the Vikings’ stadium push, this one to discuss how the state might raise money for a portion of the cost. Two Senate committees convene a joint hearing this (TUE) afternoon. It’s the second stadium discussion at the Capitol in a week’s time, after a hearing last week focused on possible locations. The Vikings want to build a $1.1 billion stadium in suburban Ramsey County, but sites in Minneapolis are in play as well. Today’s hearing will include discussion on a wide range of funding possibilities including tax proceeds from expanded gambling, a surcharge on income taxes paid by NFL players, a pro sports ticket surcharge, sales tax on sports memorabilia, or money from existing arts and cultural funds.
