Vikings stadium passes House, on to Senate

Email

ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Vikings are close to a new stadium after the House early today approved a construction plan 71-60.

Representatives debated the stadium bill an hour and 50 minutes after day-long negotiations produced a compromise bill after the House and Senate passed differing versions.

Shortly after the bill passed, the House adjourned for the year.

Senators expect to take up the bill later today before adjourning for the year.
