A new Vikings stadium proposal will be unveiled today Monday at the state Capitol. In a press release, state Rep. Terry Morrow, DFL-St. Peter, says the legislation he's drafted covers the financial questions that have hindered a new stadium plan from moving forward.

It comes as the state Senate gears up to hold the first of two hearings on the stadium Tuesday. The first meeting will focus on possible locations for the stadium -- including Arden Hills and several sites in Minneapolis. The second hearing will focus on how the state should pay its share of the $1 billion stadium.
