Well, after getting started about four hours late, we are finally into the debate about the Minnesota Vikings' stadium bill in the Minnesota Senate.
Well, I shouldn't say they got started late. . .they started on time, but after about five minutes of work they decided they needed a four-hour recess to argue about things in private. Nice work if you can get it.
But there are apparently along the lines of 50 amendments to the Senate's version of the bill, so we're going to be here for a while. I'm going to have errands to run at some point this afternoon, but there will be open threads for discussion for the entirety of the debate.
Remember, if this bill passes this afternoon/this evening/in the early hours of Wednesday morning, it still has to go into a joint committee of the House and Senate to hammer out the differences in the bill. So while this is another significant step, it isn't the last one.
Enjoy the debate, ladies and gentlemen!
