"A Ramsey County panel on Tuesday decided not to call a countywide referendum next year on a proposed half-cent sales tax hike to help build a new Minnesota Vikings stadium, eliminating an obstacle that team officials said would have delayed the project and added to its cost. Just six members of the county’s Charter Commission supported the tax referendum, with 10 opposing it. ... county residents ... testified by about a 2-to-1 margin against the tax hike at a public hearing preceding the decision."
