MINNEAPOLIS - Now that a legal challenge from a stadium opponent has been dismissed by the Minnesota Supreme Court, the state is poised to begin selling bonds to cover the state's portion of the new Vikings stadium.
John Pollard, who is the Legislative and Communications Director for Minnesota Management and Budget, told KARE 11 on Friday that the state is targeting Monday as the date for the Vikings Stadium bond sale to begin.
The $468 million bond sale had been scheduled to start on Monday, Jan. 13. The legal process will have pushed back the sale of the bonds by about two weeks.
There were concerns initially that if the delay was prolonged that the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority would have trouble paying companies who had already begun to work.
