Vikings would pay more as final voting for stadium plan is near
ST. PAUL -- The final Minnesota Legislature votes to build a Vikings stadium are coming after a decade of discussions.
Private meetings throughout Wednesday yielded a compromise between plans the House and Senate approved earlier in the week.
The Vikings are to pay $477 million toward construction costs, $50 million more than they wanted. The $975 million Minneapolis stadium, on the site of the Metrodome, would have 65,000 seats, expandable to 72,000.
