On Monday, the Minnesota House of Representatives increased the Vikings’ contribution for a new stadium from $427 million to $532 million, a jump of $105 million.
On Tuesday, the Senate applied a much more modest increase.
According to Tom Hauser of KTSP-TV, the Senate has increased the team’s share by only $25 million. In turn, that would reduce the state’s burden from $398 million to $373 million.
If the revised bill passes, a Conference Committee would have to resolve the differences between the House and Senate versions, including most notably the $75 million difference for the private contribution. Then, the compromised bill would return to both chambers for a final vote.
The Vikings have called the $105 million increase “not workable,” but the team is optimistic a more practical solution will be reached via the Conference Committee process.
