ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Another state Senate committee has kept the Vikings stadium bill moving at Minnesota's Capitol.

The Senate Jobs and Economic Development Committee moved the proposal forward Tuesday on a voice vote. It's due next in the Senate Finance Committee, which could be its last stop before a Senate floor vote.

The House version of the $1 billion stadium proposal has cleared committees and could get a floor vote as early as Wednesday.

As the stadium plan picks up steam, opponents in the Legislature are wondering if they can stop what's starting to look like a juggernaut.

But the Vikings are well-funded and have high-profile allies in business, labor and among prominent leaders, while opponents are disparate and span a wide ideological spectrum that doesn't lend itself to an organized pushback.
