Megamall seeks state help


ST. PAUL - Minnesota lawmakers gave the Mall of America a mixed reception Wednesday when its representatives sought state aid to expand.

"I would say my district needs more help than you do," Rep. Sandy Wollschlager, DFL-Cannon Falls, told them.

On the other hand, Rep. Dean Simpson, R-Perham, rebutted: "Any time you can bring that kind of money into the state, we should do it."
