Stadium Vote Delayed 30 Apr 12

Top Republicans continue delaying a House and Senate vote on a Vikings stadium, trying to pressure Governor Mark Dayton into going along with property tax relief for businesses. The governor has indicated he’d be open to it, but reportedly others in his administration are opposed.

Governor Dayton says the Vikings stadium bill should not be held hostage to anything else, and that it deserves an up-or-down vote. Top Republicans are still talking about ending the session early, but won’t say whether they’d do it without voting on a Vikings stadium.
