Resounding Support

Yesterday was an exciting day for Minnesota Momentum as a Vikings stadium bill was introduced at the Minnesota Legislature. The announcement of the legislation for a publicly-owned facility came with resounding support from all across the state. Business and labor leaders, as well as representatives from the hospitality industry and the High School Football Coaches Association, all stood up to show their support.

Now with the political process underway, Momentum supporters have an even bigger opportunity to have their voices heard, as early as today, when the stadium bill is heard in front of the House Local Government Division Committee at 4:00 p.m.

TUESDAY, MAY 4, 2010
4:00 p.m.
Meeting Time Note: Hearing will begin 30 minutes after the House floor session adjourns, but no earlier than 4:00 p.m.
Room: 5 State Office Building
Chair: Representative Michael V. Nelson
HF3825 (Solberg) Alternative plans for a new National Football League stadium in Minnesota provided, Minnesota Stadium Authority established, and Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission abolished.

While we have already lined up fans and stadium supporters to testify at tonight’s hearing, there will be more, including two on Wednesday, should the bill clear tonight’s committee, and we are going to need more fans to step up. Email us at minnesotamomentum@vikings.nfl.net if interested.

These next few days will be critical to the success of finding a stadium solution that will keep the Vikings in Minnesota for the next generation of fans. We'll keep you updated as the bill progresses -- and let you know how you can help.

Here is what you can do to help make sure this bill results in a new multi-purpose stadium for the State of Minnesota:

• Contact your elected officials and tell them why you support a new stadium.
• Show your support on stadium articles posted online in the comments section.
• Tell your friends and family why you support a new stadium and get them to sign up to become a member of Minnesota Momentum.
• Keep up to date on what is going on by stopping by www.minnesotamomentum.com at least once a day.
