Bond-Selling Delay Proposed for Vikings Stadium
There could be yet another delay in the groundbreaking for the new Vikings stadium.
A bond-selling delay would stop the flow of public money into the stadium project; the bond sale is needed to cover the state’s $348 million contribution.
Representative Joe Atkins says he wants to stop the sale until the state’s investigation into the finances of Vikings owner Zygi Wilf is complete.
“I think we ought to take a look at the due diligence review before we sell any bonds or take any further action,” Atkins said.
The investigation is aimed at making sure Wilf still has the money to cover the cost of his share of the stadium after he was found in violation of racketeering laws in New Jersey.
