MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Gov. Mark Dayton is very clear about where he stands on a new Minnesota Vikings stadium proposal unveiled a few days ago — he’s against it.

Republican lawmakers are proposing a Vikings stadium funded by taxes on tickets, concessions and parking.

The Vikes would be required to put up as much as $700 million toward a $1 billion facility. And the bill eliminates Minnesota’s statewide business property tax.

Dayton says it will raise property taxes for everyone else.

Lester Bagley, vice president of public affairs and stadium development, joined Esme Murphy on Sunday to discuss the status of these proposals. Watch the full interview above.
