ST. PAUL, MINN. (AP) - The Minnesota House has approved a plan to build a $975 million stadium for the Vikings, but with a big boost in what the team would pay.

The amended plan that passed 73-58 Monday night would raise the Vikings’ share to $532 million, or about 55 percent of construction costs. That knocks about $105 million off the state’s contribution.

The team has said it wouldn’t pay more than $427 million.

The Senate will consider its own version of the bill. Differences would be worked out in a conference committee.
