Minneapolis council majority backs stadium
ST. PAUL -- Minneapolis officials say they have enough votes on their City Council to approve a new Vikings stadium, but financing and other issues keep the proposal in doubt.
Mayor R.T. Rybak this morning gave Gov. Mark Dayton letters of support from seven council members, giving the stadium a majority backing. However, Rybak said in response to a question that the support only applies if legislators make no changes that affect Minneapolis in the stadium-construction bill.
