Vikings Stadium Update: State, Legislators Get Together For Meeting Wednesday

All of the proposals for the new Minnesota Vikings stadium are on the table. Ramsey County and the City of Minneapolis are the two legitimate players and everyone is waiting on word from Governor Mark Dayton and where he wants the new stadium built. His word on this won't actually be technically final, but it's very likely that everything will move forward with the proposal that he gives the go-ahead.

He's had the proposals on his desk for about a week now, and now it's just the waiting game. Most assume that he's already picked his spot. According to the Star Tribune, Dayton and legislators have scheduled a meeting late Wednesday to try to resolve the stadium issue.

While the piece does go on to give a quote about the fact that a decision likely won't be made during the meeting on Wednesday, there's a good chance that they've mostly made up their minds and have to work together to get a plan together for the Legislature on Jan. 24. It really wouldn't make sense for the state to sit on the proposals for any length of time, because that hurts the stadium's feasibility to get some serious work done on it during the aforementioned Legislature.
