LIVE VIDEO: Vikings Stadium Set for Final Hurdle
The Senate is voting on the conference committee bill today—with the governor's pen next.
The Vikings stadium bill is almost at the finish line at the state Capitol.
After the House gave final approval at around 3:30 a.m. today, the Senate now gets its say. You can watch live video of the proceedings above, courtesy of The UpTake. Make sure to click on the "Senate" feed.
If the bill passes the Senate, it would go on to Gov. Mark Dayton, who has been an ardent stadium supporter.
The plan calls for a $975 million stadium to be built downtown Minneapolis, on the current Metrodome site, with the state share of funding coming via a gambling expansion.
