Vikings, County Put Forward Plan To Pay For Road Improvements At Proposed Stadium

SITE WRANGLINGS: In St. Paul, Charley Walters cited sources as saying that the Vikings' only chance for a new stadium in a Minnesota state special legislative session, "under current circumstances, is to accept a Minneapolis offer on the Metrodome site" (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, 6/12). However, a ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS editorial stated, "If we're going to make a stadium deal, now is the time, and the Arden Hills venue is the site." St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman "got it right" in terms of the financing of the stadium. His "proposal for a statewide, per-drink liquor tax to fund stadiums and arenas makes much more sense" than the current plan (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, 6/12).
