ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Gov. Mark Dayton says his administration and lawmakers "may be getting close to a site, a deal and a bill" for a new Minnesota Vikings football stadium.
The Democratic governor offered the update Wednesday night during his State of the State address. He urged lawmakers to press ahead on a proposal this session and not let it linger into the fall or beyond.
Dayton suggests some lawmakers may prefer to avoid a vote on the thorny issue until after the November election. He calls that unfair to unemployed construction workers and the team.
