Vikings Stadium Update: Next Big Step For Newest Plan Comes Monday

It's been eons seemingly since the Minnesota Vikings first announced they were hoping to get a new stadium, and plans for how to get one build and where to put it have been going in and out ever since. The latest plan is going to get its biggest hurdle coming on Monday as it faces a third panel from the House of Representatives. The plan involves the stadium being built in Minneapolis with almost a billion dollars coming from various sources, most of it from the Vikings themselves.

The new $975 million plan reportedly has decent support on the 15 member group that will be doing the voting. The biggest opposition could be the chance of it going to voters instead, which could spell bad news.

The House Government Operations and Elections Committee could be an important test for the project because it is chaired by Rep. Joyce Peppin, R-Rogers, who has said she prefers a voter referendum on the stadium, which would almost certainly doom the $975 million proposal.

If the new plan can get by the House panel, it will immediately be one of the farthest ones to come out of the mess of plans that have been proposed in the past few months. If it passes the panel it could get a vote from the entire House eventually.
