Why local legislators voted no on ‘the stadium’
Whether you love it or hate it, a new Vikings stadium is coming to Minnesota.
Two weeks ago in St. Paul, state legislators spent long hours debating, amending and debating some more while the public watched on local television and in person. The bill eventually passed 71-60 in the House and 36-30 in the Senate.
Voting against the $975 million stadium project were the three Republican legislators who represent Isanti and Chisago counties. And they had their reasons when asked by the Post Review last week. See more in Jon Tatting’s exclusive story.
