The Vikings organization, its fans and Minnesota lawmakers have been battling for a new stadium to keep the Vikings a part of Minnesota culture for more than a decade. And tonight, after a full day of debate inside the State Capitol, a huge step toward that end was made.
Stadium legislation passed the Minnesota House of Representatives by a margin of 73-58, setting the stage for debate and a vote in the Minnesota Senate on Tuesday. Fans played a huge role in making a push to gain passage in the House, and now fans can have the same influence as the process moves on to the Senate.
