Minnesota Vikings stadium bill signed by governor

Gov. Mark Dayton on Monday signed the bill that will give the Minnesota Vikings a new stadium, effectively keeping the team in Minneapolis long term.

"I'm proud of those who stepped forward and said, 'This is what makes Minnesota special'," Dayton said with Vikings owner Zygi Wilf and Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak looking on, according to the Star Tribune.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello congratulated the Vikings and their fans on the new stadium on Twitter.
