There's talk of an expansion at MSP, but certainly not a new terminal, just a concourse and an expanded international area. It'd also be about $2 billion, but I agree with the comments for MCO that most airports are struggling to maintain their passenger numbers and most have probably already over-invested in their airports before fuel took off and the Recession hit.
I do not have warm and fuzzy prospects for the future of business aviation -- I think it's going to be all but cost inefficient within 20 years (used to work for an airline).
