It's the day Vikings fans have been waiting for. Minnesota, team and Minneapolis leaders haved called a press conference to unveil a new plan for a stadium near the Metrodome.
After meeting Wednesday evening, staffers were expected to work into the night finalizing terms of agreement on a stadium deal. The details will be released this morning, key lawmakers said.
Any deal has a long way to go.
The team came to two similar "term sheet" agreements with Ramsey County officials on a stadium in Arden Hills, but that project was derailed.
In addition to legislative approval, the deal needs the OK from the Minneapolis City Council, where Mayor R.T. Rybak and City Council President Barb Johnson have yet to muster a majority.
