Mayo Clinic bill runs into unfriendly territory

By Logan Lafferty

The Mayo Clinic's multibillion-dollar expansion, which relies on a hefty dose of state funding, has its supporters, but one of them isn't Ann Lenczewski. And she's the one running the Minnesota House committee that the clinic's plan has to get through. Rep. Lenczewski, DFL-Bloomington,blasted Mayo's request for $500 million in taxpayer funding as a "massive public subsidy" that would raise taxes for other Minnesotans so the clinic could improve its Rochester operations.
