@atoonce - Most of them explained the reasons for their votes just prior to actually voting.

The day after the Vikings announce they are moving to LA, the value of the franchise will double, moving from bottom 3 of the NFL to top 5. I don't know why the Wilfs are even bothering at this point, they can move anytime they want to.

Thank you, now when they move to LA I wont have to fly to Minn. anymore to watch games. I guess the hotels I stayed at and food places I went to are doing well enough they don't need my money anymore. I can actually drive to the games if they move to California.

Why would anyone have to explain the common sense behind a "no" vote? If you don't understand it, no explanation will help.

We need to replace this people that voted against the stadium, They do not have the best interest of the people or the Vikings at heart. I live in Bemidji, Hancock will not get my vote.

The folks that voted "no" on this should be voted out. Their short term thinking will result in Billions in lost revenue over the next 50 years. Sure, it would have been quite an expense now, but we would certainly reap the rewards in years to come. Mark my words, Minneapolis' US ranking will go down significantly as soon as the Vikings pull out!

In fairness - a couple of the republicans on the committee "Passed" on their first votes to wait and see how the DFL members (who had committed to vote it on) would vote. If the 2 DFL Members Dayton had assured would vote for it in addition to the 1 who actually did, then 2 - 3 more Republicans would have voted for it. But since the DFL abandoned their own districts, the Republicans said we're not voting for it.

As a Minneapolis voter and taxpayer, I want to personally thank each one of these legislators to opposed the bill for their vote. Our own mayor and a majority of the city council do not believe that Minneapolis voters should have the right to vote as per law on whether our tax dollars are used to fund a sports stadium. It is humbling that you state representatives, many on the opposite side of the political aisle and living outstate have more concern for the average Minneapolis citizen than our own local elected representatives. You show us great honor. You display great integrity and true value for the law. Regardless of whether one is for a city tax-funded sports stadium or against it, the citizens of Minneapolis deserve to vote on the package. Your recognition of that fact should shame our elected city officials who would deny it. Thank you for your vote.
