Monday marks a very, very big day for the Minnesota Vikings and their hopes of staying in the state of Minnesota. The latest $1 Billion Stadium Plan will get its chance on the floor of the House of Representatives on Monday, with the future of the team perhaps in the balance.
The debates on the bill will start later in the day, and could extend a good, long while which could push the actual vote very late into the night. With so much vocal support for both sides of the issue, we know that there will be tons of debate thrown around.
A win for the bill in the House on Monday would not guarantee an easy ride through, of course. The bill will still have to go through more processes including having the Senate vote on a separate version of it on a later date. Still, this bill has to start somewhere and if it can pass the House which has had its vocal doubts so far in the process, anything is possible.
As Ted Glover reminds us on twitter, it's not too late to give the Legislature a call if you want to help push for the bill to pass.
Well, it's D-Day for the #Vikings stadium.It's not too late to call or email the Legislature and tell the to vote yes. #mnleg— Ted Glover (@purplebuckeye) May 7, 2012
