Stadium Deadline Just Inches Away
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — With the 2012 legislative session set to end Monday, it’ll take a lot of work to get the Vikings’ stadium bill to the governor’s desk.
The Senate Tax Committee will have a hearing on the stadium bill later today, but this bill had been expected to come up before the Minnesota House and the Senate before the end of the week.
That puts the pressure on lawmakers who were set to adjourn on Monday.
Some lawmakers have other priorities that they would like to focus on first, too, such as the GOP tax and jobs bill. And others have raised concerns about 16,000 electronic pull tab machines in the state of Minnesota not being enough to generate the $400 million needed from the state to fund the stadium.
