ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The pressure is building on Minnesota legislators as they enter what could be the final week of session. 

Legislators so far have little to show for their work, but that could change rapidly. A new session for the Minnesota Vikings, borrowing for construction projects and tax changes are the major issues in play heading into Monday's floor sessions. 

The stadium bill has been the most-watched issue of the session. Gov. Mark Dayton has pushed hard for a $1 billion project on the site of the current Metrodome that would guarantee the Vikings' future in Minnesota for the next 30 years. 

The proposal has limped through several committees but hasn't had floor votes yet.
