While Six Vote ‘Nay,’ Eight Vote ‘Yay’
After a stressful and disappointing 48 hours of stadium news, the Vikings stadium bill seems to have possibly been revived by a Senate committee late on Friday.
Those following the bill closely are reporting the Local Government and Elections Committee passed the stadium bill on a vote of 8-6 Friday breathing new life into the bill that has reached a new level of urgency.
At this point, being the political novice that I am, I am not sure what exactly will happen next. A reader pointed us towards a tweet, however, that suggests the bill will now travel to the Senate Jobs and Economic Growth Committee where it will hopefully see similar support.
I will be sure to keep an eye out for new updates for you all as they become available.
[UPDATE: Our reader was 100% correct, the Jobs and Economic Growth Committee is where the bill heads to next. Big thanks to CALVKG for the info!]
