Vikings Stadium Updates

Negotiators for the House of Representatives and charitable gaming interests struck a deal this weekend to provide more tax relief for charities. The agreement potentially removes one of the remaining obstacles blocking the Vikings stadium bill.

The stadium bill - which would put a new stadium next to the current Metrodome, financed with $427 million from the Vikings, $398 million from the state and $150 million from Minneapolis - has had one hearing in the Senate but no vote. Monday will be its first hearing in the House.

There is still time to fix the plan for the new dome:
Make the baseball addition a massive prism shape that can rotate downward and around, in this way football seating vanishes underground and makes way for AstroTurf when hosting baseball, and rotates upward and around for football events to create additional seating
It would put Minneapolis on the map w/ the most innovative stadium in the world!
