New Senate stadium plan includes user fees
ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Senate is debating a Vikings stadium funding bill that mixes user fees with gambling taxes as a financing plan.
Senators began the debate at 12:50 p.m., nearly four hours late. They planned to be at it for hours.
"It is an issue that has been put on our lap," bill author Sen. Julie Rosen, R-Fairmont, said, adding that her plan is "the best stadium bill we have had to date."
