In the wee hours of the morning, Mrs. Warwas couldn’t believe I was watching Minnesota’s equivelant of C-SPAN, but I just couldn’t help myself.

In the end, the Vikings stadium bill passed through the Minnesota House of Representatives and it will now move on to the State Senate.

Should the Senate also approve the bill, it will then need to go through the Governor’s office and the City of Minneapolis will also need to approve the plan with an official vote.

The bill passed at about 3:32 a.m. (Central Lutefisk Time) by a vote of 71 – 60.
