    Minnesota governor signs bill to build new Vikings stadium – USATODAY.com

    Is this not wrong in a way. Almost 1 Billion for the New Vikings stadium from the State.

    Not the first state to do this.

    ST. PAUL (AP) – The Vikings stadium deal that Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton
    signed into law Monday involves plenty of public participation, but it also
    prevents the public from getting a look at the team's finances during their
    partnership to build the $975 million stadium.
    HUH?

    Minnesota budget deficit one of the worst | Capitol Chatter

    Minnesota budget deficit one of the worst. Huh? 5 Billion deficit, yet they are putting almost 1 Billion
    into a new stadium for the NFL.

    What say ye?
