House debates Vikings stadium plan
ST. PAUL -- A debate a decade in the making began this afternoon as the state House considered whether to build a nearly $1 billion Vikings stadium.
"This is our one chance," Rep. John Kriesel, R-Cottage Grove, said. "This bill works. It has been fined tuned and it will build a stadium."
Rep. Morrie Lanning, R-Moorhead, said the bill he authored will provide much more than just a Vikings stadium to replace the downtown Minneapolis Metrodome.
