ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Vikings owners met with Gov. Mark Dayton, key legislators and Ramsey County officials this afternoon, coming away with one agreement: They need to write a bill by Friday.
"The end of this week is essentially the deadline," Dayton said after the 90-minute meeting.
No one in the meeting could specify details about what they accomplished today and none expressed optimism about the deal getting done.
