Mall of America considers expansion


MINNEAPOLIS (WKOW) -- Minnesota state lawmakers appear ready to approve expansion plans for America's largest shopping mall, the Mall of America.

Democrats and Republicans have disagreed for years about plans to double the size of the mall, but now seem likely to agree.

The expansion would add 5 million square feet of retail space, create 5,000 construction jobs, and add a water park and hotel to the project.

Early indications are that the project will take three years.
