ST. PAUL - Minnesota House Representative Tom Hackbarth, R-Cedar, wants voters to decide whether a new Vikings stadium should be paid for with a casino. He is making the proposal to break the logjam on the Vikings stadium issue.

"I've got a lot of constituents that want to see a new Vikings stadium, but mostly I have constituents who don't want tax dollars going to build that stadium," Hackbarth said. "This is a good alternative. Allow one privately owned casino in the metropolitan area. Pass a constitutional amendment that would allow that to happen, and then the license for that casino would go to buy a new stadium for the Vikings."

The Vikings' lease on the Metrodome expires in 2011. Team owner Zygi Wilf is seeking public funding for a new stadium. He has proposed a new stadium on the site of the Metrodome, which would cost more than $900 million.
