Stadium deal still being debated

| No Comments

Debating still goes on for the downtown vikings site proposed by Mayor R.T. Rybak on Friday.

Gov. Mark Dayton toured the proposed Arden Hills site for the new Vikings Stadium on Friday, but says "I continue to be even handed to any site as long as it's in Minnesota," said the governor.

While lawmakers are pushing back on Dayton's idea to hold a special session to address the vikings issue. "Special sessions are for flooding or tornadoes," said Rep. Bob Dettmer.

And overall lawmakers are still debating the feasibility of the proposals. "The state doesn't have $300 million sitting around in a slush fund," said Rep Mary Kiffmeyer.
