Stadium Situation Coming Down To The Wire

The Minnesota Capitol is hoping to adjourn the current session by Monday evening.

That means, in order for the Vikings to have a stadium bill passed this year, it will either have to happen very soon or be taken care of in a special session.  Signs continue to point towards a vote taking place on the floor of both the House and the Senate before the deadline.

The latest news regarding the stadium bill is that a 7-6 vote narrowly let it escape the Senate Taxes Committee after some heated debate took place.  Most of the squabbling centers on the sources of funding trying to be used, particularly the portions involving an increase of gambling.

It is possible that votes will come on the bill either Sunday or Monday.
