"The reason why we're having the hearings is to fill in the blanks on a bill that's just about done but not quite," said Julie Rosen, R-Fairmont, who's leading stadium efforts in the state Senate.
A Senate committee hearing Nov. 29 will focus on a site in Arden Hills favored by the Vikings as well as three proposed Minneapolis locations, and another hearing on Dec. 6 will address potential state funding options.
The state needs to find as much as $650 million as part of a stadium package totaling about $1 billion at any of the four sites.
Notes: The Vikings announced Wednesday that they are donating $200,000 to the University of Minnesota's Amplatz Children's Hospital and another $240,000 to the university's department of pediatrics.
