Minn. House leader balks at emergency stadium vote
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The top Minnesota House Republican says he doesn't want the Legislature to meet in emergency session this year to vote on a Vikings stadium package.
House Speaker Kurt Zellers says in an email sent Tuesday evening to his 71 GOP colleagues that the stadium should instead be considered in next year's session, which begins in late January.
The Vikings are four games away from completing their Metrodome lease. They have no plans to sign an extension.
