Mayo Clinic, state officials seek funding Plan B

By Logan Lafferty

Mayo Clinic officials are working with lawmakers to come up with a Plan B to pay for its Destination Medical Center proposal amid criticism about the current plan, which would require more than $500 million in state support…A Republican backer of the project, Rep. Greg Davids, from Preston, said he fears time is running out. He accused the governor of only paying "lip service" to the project and the DFL leadership of being "timid." "If they are going to kill the Mayo DMC (bill), I want people to understand exactly what happened. So I am calling for action today to try and move this process forward, because we can make this work," he said.
