Vikings Stadium Update: Next Committee Meeting Scheduled

The quest for a new Minnesota Vikings' stadium will continue on Monday, April 16, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Monday is the first day back for legislators after a break for the Easter and Passover holidays, and it appears that they're going to get right to work, as the Vikings' stadium bill has been scheduled for a hearing in front of the House Government Operations and Elections Committee on Monday evening.

This will be the third House Committee that the bill has been placed in front of, having already gone through the House Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee, as well as the House Rules Committee. It has yet to get pushed through any committee in the Senate at this time.

There was an encouraging sign from an unlikely source this week, however, as House Speaker Kurt Zellers finally started suggesting that the Minnesota House of Representatives could, indeed, vote on a stadium bill before the end of this year's session. Zellers has not been the plan's strongest supporter to this point, and so the declaration that he would allow the bill to be brought to the floor is pretty significant.

This year's legislative session can stretch all the way to May 21, although lawmakers have suggested that they would like to wrap things up before the calendar flips over to May.
