Mayo Clinic bill called ‘massive public subsidy’ by Minnesota House tax panel chair

By Logan Lafferty

The chair of the House Tax Committee blasted plans to spend more than $500 million in taxpayer funds on infrastructure projects in Rochester to support growth at the Mayo Clinic…"It's allowing one developer to carve out the income and sales taxes in the city of Rochester for their benefit," Lenczewski said. "That means a tax increase for everyone else to make up for that loss...The state has never done this."
