The Minnesota Vikings' offensive at the state capitol keeps on rolling. Today, the proposal—minus critical Target Center provisions—goes before the Senate's Jobs and Economic Growth Committee.
According to MPR, new maneuvering in St. Paul has given the football team's $975 million proposal new life. However, a Senate committee also stripped out key provisions that would let the City of Minneapolis reduce property taxes by redirecting some tax money to pay for the Target Center. According to the Star-Tribune, DFLers from St Paul had complained that the move gave Minneapolis an unfair advantage over St. Paul's Xcel Center. The Target Center provisions are likely key to passing Minneapolis' portion stadium deal through the CityCouncil.
Tuesday's Senate hearing begins at 10:30 a.m.
