Governor planning Nov. 7 stadium plan deadline


ST. PAUL -- Gov. Mark Dayton gives himself a Nov. 7 deadline for releasing a Vikings football stadium construction plan, but only if others get him information on time.

"I am still in a listening mode," Dayton said Wednesday, adding that he has asked the Vikings and others to deliver the information he needs in order to draw up "a more specific proposal."

Nov. 7 is two weeks before he plans to call the Legislature into special session to deal with the stadium.
