For those who care for another mercurial stadium update


This morning Gov. Dayton whipped out the thesaurus to color the GOP in a "ludicrous, disaster, absurd, harebrained, laughable, cynical, fiasco, insincere, appalling" light. He stopped short of turning green, ripping his purple shorts, and smashing things around the capitol. Since then, tempers have cooled off in high level meetings between the Gov. and GOP leaders to hammer out a bill that is ensured to pass.

So far they have determined:

Stadium WILL have a roof, stadium WILL be payed for with bonds from sales and income state tax since it is publicly owned, State's current offer is 25% of cost plus roof, plan will be pursued only if Vikes and City sign on (number debatable). Old plan did not pass votes required they say.

What is yet to be determined is: Are the Vikings on board (talks ongoing), is Minneapolis on board (same), and will the DFL commit.

Keep the faith. SKOL.
