Vikings Stadium Bill Passes The House

Well, we’ve said all along:  it ain’t over ‘til it is over.

And it ain’t over yet.

Still, it is significant news that the Vikings stadium bill has reached new heights on Monday as the Minnesota House of Representatives passed it by a vote of 73-58, which is five more votes than it needed to pass.

The catch, however, is that the bill upped the Vikings and the NFL’s contribution to the project from $427 million to $532 million and, according to PFT, that may not be sitting well with the NFL.

On Tuesday, the bill will be voted on by the Minnesota State Senate and there are still plenty of issues to iron out even if it passes.

The good news is, for those that want to see the Vikings stay put, that opponents were unable to Kill Bill today.

Tomorrow, however, is another day.

What did happen today, however, is the House put the onus on the Vikings not to move the team over a mere $105 million additive.  This appears like a sneaky way put the ball in their court and, if things play out poorly, take the blame should the team leave the State.
