This isn't a state priority right now. No state subsidy is aceptable. Mato may build out on thier own, or wait for the state to fund it's higher priority infrastructure needs then finally get to this, if it really is a state responsibility which it sounds like it isn't.
Dayton has our money tied up in the underfunded and unpopular Vikings stadium boondoggle. Sorry...too many competing priorities at this time all vying for deficit funding.
Give them the money we are about to waste on the replacement sports stadium. At least we'd get something beneficial in return rather than a tingly feeling 8 sundays a year. Nice priorities.
Remember, there is no state money given to Mayo. It is given to local government entities for infrastructure and service improvements. The state monies will come from private investor growth during Mayo's $3 billion expansion plan.
I live in St. Paul. I'd like investment in infrastructure right here too, so as to improve this city which is home to far more people and businesses than Rochester.
