The Daily Circuit: House leaders clash over funding for Mayo proposal

By Logan Lafferty

The Mayo Clinic's ambition to become a "destination medical center" has lawmakers divided — and not just along party lines. Two DFL House leaders — Taxes Committee Chair Ann Lenczewski and Assistant Majority Leader Kim Norton — see things very differently...The novelty of the plan doesn't concern Norton, who is sponsoring the bill in the House. She told MPR News, "If other businesses can do it and it increases revenue in this state, and they need infrastructure in their communities, maybe it's a new good idea."
