Fans at the Capitol

New, comments

Tomorrow, the state of Minnesota is going to enjoy record high temperatures and sunshine, the likes of which we haven't seen since October. So, if you happen to be in our fair state, roll up your sleeves and soak up that long-absent vitamin D, or take your smartphone out to the park and join the Daily Norseman open threads. Go wild.

But, if all that pesky sunshine and the warm temperatures aren't your thing, you can always hang out at the State Capitol and watch Minnesota's democracy inaction in action. Nope, not kidding about that.

Minnesota Momentum has put out a call for Vikings fans to show up at the capitol tomorrow in a show of support for the stadium bill that is starting to work it's way through various committees. The stadium bill (Senate file 2391) is scheduled to go before the Senate Committee on Local Government and Elections on Wednesday, March 14th at 1:00p.m. in Room 15 of the State Capitol.

The team is hoping that fans will show up in force (and in purple and gold) to show the Minnesota Legislature that there is public support for a new stadium. Considering Governor Mark Dayton's statement that the stadium bill's chances of passing are 50-50, a strong showing of public support may be necessary to improve the stadium bill's odds of passing.
