The Minnesota House of Representatives voted 73-58 to pass legislation for a new Vikings stadium.

The vote, which took place late Monday night, sends the legislation to the state Senate, which likely will vote on it Tuesday.

The $975 million plan was amended on Monday night, raising the Vikings’ share to $532 million for construction costs, saving the state about $105 million in its contribution compared to the original bill.

Fans were at the state Capitol on Monday, voicing their support for a new stadium, something that owner Zygi Wilf and the Vikings have been working toward for a decade. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is a proponent of the new stadium.

The Vikings have one more year on their lease in the Metrodome, and a failure to pass this legislation would make the Vikings a likely candidate to move to Los Angeles.
