The Minnesota Senate approved the proposal to build a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings today by a vote of 36-30. Carver County’s State Senator, Julianne Ortman, voted no on the proposal. This was the final legislative hurdle for the bill, and the final action taken by the Legislature this session. Both houses have adjourned, and the 2012 campaign is underway.
Governor Mark Dayton may sign the bill as soon as this afternoon. Various reports indicate that team owner Zygi Wilf is en route to the state.
