Against Vikings' wishes, House changes stadium bill
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.
Right off kickoff, representatives decided the plan offered by Rep. Morrie Lanning, R-Moorhead, was not ready, even after 10 years of discussion. The House's first amendment increases Vikings' contribution to a stadium more than the team wants.
Debate was expected to continue for hours, possibly well into Tuesday.
