Representatives from the Twins, Vikings and Gophers talked about their proposed new facilities. The Gophers received legislative approval in 2006 and will begin play in TCF Bank Stadium in 2009. The Twins, after 11 years of work by President Bell, reached a deal with Hennepin County and the Minnesota Legislature in that same 2006 session and will open Target Field in 2010. Kelly, President of the Vikings at the time, talked of the need to find a solution before the end of the Vikings' Metrodome lease in 2011. As of 2008 no solution had been found.
