Vikings Stadium Update: Vote On New Proposal Set For Monday

The Minnesota legislative Republicans have decided on a new plan for financing a stadium for the Vikings, and there will be a vote for that plan on Monday.

On Thursday, House Speaker Kurt Zellers said that Monday's vote will involve another plan that is tied to the state's expansion of gambling. Zellers has said on the record that he opposes the bill, and that he isn't sure if it will pass.

The Republican legislative leaders dropped a proposal to finance a new $975 million Minnesota Vikings stadium by issuing bonds directly that were tied to state's general treasury.
