Vikings stadium bill to be unveiled soon?
That Minnesota Vikings lobbyist might have been wrong after all: The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that state senate taxes committee chair Tom Bakk says a Vikings stadium bill is "pretty much drafted" and that there's "plenty of time" to pass it before the Legislature adjourns in mid-May.
Of course, as the Vikings (and the Twins) found in past years, there's a big difference between getting a bill up for debate and getting one passed — especially since as of this writing, still no one is exactly sure how on earth it would be paid for. And then there's that little public poll thing as well. But if nothing else, it looks like we may well have an entertaining May ahead of us.
