Minnesota (WDAY TV) -- The Senate is expected to vote yet today on a bill to fund a new Minnesota Vikings stadium.

It mixes user fees with gambling taxes. Debate got started around 1 o'clock. And is expected to last for hours. The state House approved a stadium deal, adding 105-million dollars of the cost to the team's share.

The Vikings would pay more than 50 per cent of the cost. The vote followed 7 hours of debate on nearly 50 amendments Monday.

Differences would be worked out in a conference committee.
