Correction: A previous version of this table incorrectly listed Rep. Mary Murphy as a "No" vote and Rep. Erin Murphy as a "Yes" vote. They each voted in the opposite manner. The table has been corrected.

    “O” Means No Vote

    It means no vote-they may have abstained or simply not voted.

      Thanks, Joe

      I figured it was something like that. I used the Vikings web site the other day to find my rep and left a voice message for her letting her know how displeased I was with the government-paid stadium. Considering Dayton’s support for it, I guess a democrat who abstains is better than the alternative.

    Minneapolis votes

    According to my count, the only Minneapolis representatives voting to approve the bill were Champion and Thissen (the latter who will move into my district next year).
