Minnesota Stadium Bill Update: Senate Amendment To Increase Vikings' Share By $25 Million

The Minnesota Senate passed an amendment to the Minnesota Vikings stadium bill on Tuesday, representing an apparent compromise with the House's largely unpopular plan that was revealed on Monday evening.

The Senate amendment is set to increase the Vikings' share by $25 million, lowering the state's stadium contribution from $398 million to $373 million. Political reporter Tom Hauser of Twin Cities station KSTP broke the news on Twitter Tuesday afternoon:

A Vikings spokesman recently called the House's $105 million increase 'unworkable', but an $80 million decline by the Senate's proposed plan certainly appears viable for all parties. The Senate is reportedly set to review roughly 50 amendments throughout a busy Tuesday, so stick right here with SB Nation Minnesota for more updates as they happen.
