Latest Stadium Plan 02 May 12

A Republican plan for a roofless Vikings stadium, with the state’s portion paid for with bonding money, has the Capitol in an uproar. Democrats blasted the latest proposal for building the football team a new home. Governor Dayton called the plan “cynical, underhanded politics” and accused Republicans of trying to secretly negotiate with the Vikings. Most lawmakers now have the day off while legislative leaders try to negotiate solutions. The ongoing issues include the Vikings stadium, a bonding bill, and a tax bill.
