Vikings stadium heads for final committee


ST. PAUL -- The Vikings stadium got "another first down" Tuesday, proclaimed the chairman of the state Senate committee that kept the bill's recent momentum going.

The Senate jobs committee unanimously approved the stadium bill, sending it to its final committee, which is expected to debate it this morning. If approved there, it will head to the Senate floor.

A similar bill awaits a House floor debate, but House leaders have not said when that will occur.
