Mayo expansion more costly than expected
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota legislators expressed sticker shock Tuesday when they learned the state's Mayo Clinic expansion proposal would cost more than they thought.
It could be $1 billion more than Mayo supporters had said.
The Rochester-based health center known around the world asked the Legislature and Gov. Mark Dayton to borrow $585 million to help the community build facilities related to the expansion, things such as parking ramps, streets and land purchase.
