Vikings Stadium With State Funding? Go Fish, Says Davids

At this point, a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings isn't on the drawing board. And there's no clear way for how it would get paid for.

As long as no money for a new stadium comes out of the state's general fund, says Preston republican state rep, Greg Davids. He knows that's not a popular stand among those who look at the Vikings as a statewide asset.   But, Davids says, the Vikes are just another business in the state and the team doesn't give places like his district a direct benefit.


Davids, also head of the house tax committee in Saint Paul, also says he might support a Twin Cities area taxing district to help pay for the stadium. It is the metro area, he says, that gets all the benefit of having the Vikings around.
