Vikings Stadium Update: Amended Bill Passes House Vote

After more than six hours of debates and everyone getting in their last words on the latest proposed stadium bill for the Minnesota Vikings, the voting finally started just after 11 p.m. ET. The results are in and it's great news for Vikings fans:

The amended #Vikings stadium bill passes in the Minnesota House by a vote of 73-58. Headed to Senate, presumably Tuesday, then committees.

This is obviously positive and worthy of celebrating, but it's just a step forward, as the bill still must pass through the Senate, where the bill will be under the microscope again. The Vikings are urging fans to reach out to their Senate reps to encourage their votes in favor of the latest proposal so the Vikings can get their new stadium and assure their fans they will be remaining in Minnesota for the foreseeable future.

Stay tuned to this storystream for updates on the vote. For more on the Minnesota Vikings and their stadium issues, head over to The Daily Norseman. For more on the NFL in general, check out SB Nation's dedicated NFL hub.
