On Monday, the Minnesota Vikings stadium bill will finally come to the floor of the Minnesota House of Representatives for an up or down vote.

After multiple reports earlier in the week stated that an alternate proposal suggesting the stadium should be open air were making rounds, it will be the original proposal that gets voted on Monday.

It is almost impossible to predict what the outcome of the floor vote will be. Either way, the Vikings and proponents of the new stadium will finally get what they’ve been asking for: a clear-cut yes or no answer.

It’s safe to assume that lobbyists for both sides, as well as the general public, will have a very busy weekend trying to gather votes for Monday. House Speaker Kurt Zellers has already announced that he will be voting against the bill and ‘called on Dayton to round up the ‘yes’ votes himself.”

Although an approval in the House would still require a sign-off by the Senate, it would be a momentous occasion for the Vikings and nearly solidify a stadium that has been in the works seemingly forever.

Stay tuned Vikings fans. One way or the other, we should have some closure come Monday.

  3. Message I sent to Kurt Zellers, I would encourage others to do the same:

    I have lived in Minnesota most of my life and plan to live there again in the future. I am not currently a resident, but I can’t help being extremely frustrated at how the Vikings stadium is being used as a political bargaining chip by the republicans and particularly by you.

    You are the leader of the caucas and a representative of the residents of Minnesota. The majority of residents want a stadium built, it is your job to show some leadership and gain agreement and bi-partisan support for a deal that makes sense.

    I, as a registered Republican, am ashamed of the passive stance you have taken on this issue. Standing on the sideline and waiting to blame others if it doesn’t pass is cowardly. I ask that you start acting like a leader and stop thinking more about the next election than the good of Minnesota.

  4. Co Vikes,

    Your old pal Fragile also sent a note to Zeller and showed great restraint in not calling him a “corn hole”. Freds would encourage all readers to communicate your wishes of a new stadium. It really is the only action to be taken. Spend 5 minutes writing a note to Zellers, it does help.

    Speak up !
