Billboards aim to attract MN visitors

"North Dakota - - Open For Business." That's the new slogan the state is using to attract visitors from Minnesota.

The Greater North Dakota Chamber has created billboards that mock decisions made this session by the Minnesota Legislature. That includes bills that raise taxes on income and consumer products like tobacco, gas and beer. The first billboard went up Thursday along Interstate 94 in Moorhead. A Moorhead councilman calls the billboards "unproductive and confrontational" and has already asked that it be taken down. Other billboards are planned throughout the summer.
