Clock is ticking on Vikings stadium


After a decade of debate, the Vikings stadium proposal will likely be decided — or mostly decided — this legislative session.

It's a debate that needs resolution.

Sen. Julie Rosen, R-Fairmont, has taken the lead on the plan and is to officially introduce it to lawmakers. The Vikings' lease at the Metrodome is coming to an end and the team says it will not renew it without a stadium deal in place.
