Dayton signs stadium bill

Email

ST. PAUL -- Rep. Morrie Lanning summed up a stadium bill signing in three words: "We did it."

That pretty much was the attitude of a couple hundred cheering Minnesotans, many wearing Vikings' purple, in the Capitol rotunda today as Gov. Mark Dayton signed the $975 million stadium construction proposal.

Lanning, R-Moorhead, said hundreds of people worked on the bill and thousands of Minnesotans influenced a majority of legislators to approve it last week.
