Money questions remain about new Vikings stadium
Vikings stadium deal crosses goal line, but questions linger about paying Minnesota's share
By The Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) ' Now that the Minnesota Vikings are set to get their new stadium, the worrying begins over a gambling expansion designed to pay the state's share of the $975 million project.

Gov. Mark Dayton has pledged to sign the stadium bill into law.
