GF City Leaders Meet With North Dakota Legislature In Bismarck

The Greater Grand Forks Area Chamber of Commerce, UND and other city leaders are discussing local needs at the North Dakota Legislature.

Tomorrow and Friday are "Grand Forks Days" at the Legislature.

Area Leaders will discuss Grand Forks Air Force Base, the Airport and UND's involvement with UAS Systems.

They say they are looking to put Grand Forks back on the Legislative Map.

"By having the EDC, Chamber, the city and the university coming all together these different leaders are going to have a opportunity to see that Grand Forks is working together on a joint Legislative platform," said GF/EGF Chamber of Commerce President Barry Wilfarht.

During the last session, the city leaders say they got everything they asked for and they hope for a repeat this year.
