Legislators balk at $500M request from Mayo to aid expansion

By Logan Lafferty

When Minnesota lawmakers return to the state Capitol on Tuesday to focus on a two-year budget, they will also weigh whether to approve the Mayo Clinic's request for $500 million to support its $3 billion expansion plan…Lisa Clark, the administrator for the system's Destination Medical Center plan, said a new plan could emerge if lawmakers help devise a better way to pay for the expansion. "If lawmakers have different ideas that can finance the needed infrastructure over the next 20 years and keep pace with the level of Mayo and other private investment that we're suggesting in our plan, than we're certainly open to working alternatives," she said.
