ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota House Democrats want to trim the state’s contribution to a Mayo Clinic expansion proposal by about $200 million from an original request of about $500 million from the Rochester healthcare giant.

Under the revised proposal released Monday as part of a larger House tax bill, about $300 million from Minnesota taxpayers would go toward building public infrastructure to support Mayo’s planned $3.5 billion expansion of its Rochester campus. Mayo officials predict it will generate an additional $2 billion in private investment.

Taxpayers in Rochester and surrounding Olmsted County would be responsible for a greater share of the total cost. Elected officials would be able to choose from a menu of tax increases on lodging, food and beverage, entertainment and recreation facilities, transit, and vehicle wheelage to help pay a $100 million local share.
