Just as fears have been ramping up that the Minnesota Vikings were going to be L.A.-bound, the Vikings and their fans get some much-needed good news. Tuesday night the Ramsey County Charter Commission met to listen to public opinion regarding the proposed Vikings stadium in Arden Hills, then the panel rejected putting the proposed sales tax increase before voters on the 2012 ballot. This is good news to the Vikings and stadium supporters had voiced concern that putting the proposed sales tax increase to a voter referendum would delay the project and add significantly to its cost. But, lest the team and stadium advocates breathe too easily, the results of the Metropolitan Council's stadium site feasibility study commissioned by Governor Mark Dayton will be available Wednesday.
