Is $300M too much for state to invest in stadium?

That would be the state’s share for a new $1B home for the Vikings

May 12, 2011

District 22 State Sen. Doug Magnus publicly threw his support behind a push for a new stadium for the Vikings in early April - as long as the team had a plan in place. That plan, or at least updated version of a previous one, was unveiled Tuesday when the Vikings and Ramsey County announced they had come to an agreement on a $1.1 billion retractable-roof stadium in Arden Hills - a 10-mile drive from Minneapolis. The Vikings and Ramsey County both think they scored a touchdown with the plan; now it's on to the extra point - gaining approval from the state Legislature. And Magnus, R-Slayton, can't say one way or the other if the support needed at the Capitol to put up $300 million for the stadium will be there.
