The Minnesota Vikings had proposed a bill to the government in order to fund the building of a new football stadium for their team. The state House approved this legislation with one exception-the Vikings team would have to pay a higher share than they originally proposed. This was great news to the Minnesota Vikings to hear!
The new stadium will cost around $975 million to establish and build but the state House believed it was necessary and reasonable. The public had a huge influence over this decision due to the fans calling into the House, writing emails and letters, and even standing outside of the building singing the Viking’s fight song. Well, the large fan base and all of their efforts paid off! Congratulations to the Minnesota Vikings on the new stadium!
