ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton says Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf should have to cover much of the team's share of stadium construction from their own pockets, not through profit from expensive personal seat licenses.
Dayton sent a letter Monday to the chairwoman of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority. The authoritiy is negotiating final stadium contracts with the team.
The governor cites media reports that suggested the team's owners could get much of their $477 million share of the $1 billion stadium from an NFL contribution, and revenue from naming rights and seat licenses.
Dayton writes that the team's share should come from the Wilfs ``and not from Vikings' fans through the sale of expensive personal seat licenses.''
A Vikings spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
