After the Vikings stadium bill died in the Minnesota Legislature, the NFL mobilized, urging the politicians to at least subject the measure to a vote before the House and the Senate.
The team and the league will get what they wanted, even if it means that the full votes result in no new stadium for the Vikings.
The Associated Press reports that the bill, already poised for a vote on the House floor, emerged from the Senate Tax Committee late Friday night by a vote of 7-6, after a contentious hearing.
The stadium bill is now expected to face “marathon” sessions and close votes in the House and Senate before the legislative session ends at midnight on Monday.
This one could still go either way. We’ll have a final answer within the next two days.
