One of the objectives of the state's Stadium Screening Committee was to look over all prospective plans for a new stadium and recommend one package for a Twins and Vikings stadium that Gov. Tim Pawlenty can give his endorsement to.
The problem, as we're hearing it, is that no consensus on any individual plan has been made yet. While the driving force of the current plan appears to be getting the Twins done first, the Vikings aren't exactly thrilled about the idea of waiting their turn in line -- especially now that contraction (which the Twins VOTED IN FAVOR OF!) is now off the table by Major League Baseball.
The committee is weighing the advantages and disadvantages of the proposals under review and will take a final vote with a recommendation for Pawlenty Thursday.
VU has been told the vote will take place at 12:30 p.m. Central Time in Room 5 of the State Office Building.
