Vikings Stadium Meetings To Heat Up This Week
The plan to get the Vikings a new stadium takes center stage this week. Today, Gov. Mark Dayton kicks off a series of talks about a stadium deal.
This afternoon Dayton will sit down with key legislators and the people who drafted an analysis of the stadium proposal for the Arden Hills site that came out last week. On Tuesday, the governor will meet with NFL officials before meeting with Vikings Owner Zygi Wilf on Wednesday.
Gov. Dayton says he’s considering calling a special session to vote on a Vikings proposal, but he doesn’t want to do that without some agreement before hand. Still, Dayton knows that with just over two months until the Vikings lease at the Metrodome expires, time is running out.
The Vikings lost to the Bears 39-10 in Chicago on Sunday night.
