We're posting some questions and short answers this morning on the Vikings stadium debate and what happens next, just to keep everyone up to speed.

Q: What happens next?

A: All the stadium proposals are due to Gov. Dayton by the end of today. He plans to "act to make one of them a reality" in the upcoming legislative session.

"I think the facts will speak for themselves in large part," Dayton said last week. "I think one (proposal) will show probably to be a better option than the other or the others, and that will facilitate everyone's decision."

While the deadline for plans is 5 p.m., we may get an update at 1 p.m. Dayton's added a press conference to announce a new transportation initiative and will no doubt get a question about the Vikings.
