Voting on the bill that would give the Minnesota Vikings their new stadium has been delayed. A Senate committee on Wednesday tabled the bill until an unspecified date, but Vikings Vice President Lester Bagley is still optimistic that it can be approved. If passed, the $975-million project will be built on the site of the Metrodrome. Under the proposed bill, Minneapolis would pay $150-million of the total cost, the Vikings would pay $427-million and the state would chip in $398-million received from tax revenue on electronic pull-tab games. Tomorrow (FRI) is an important deadline for bills in the legislature to pass through the committee process in order to still be considered this year.
