Controversial Billboard Moved from North Dakota, Minnesota Border

FARGO, N.D. (AP) – A billboard promoting North Dakota’s business climate that drew criticism in the Fargo-Moorhead area has been moved away from the North Dakota-Minnesota border.

The billboard is part of a Greater North Dakota Chamber campaign aimed at promoting North Dakota’s booming economy and encouraging Minnesota to improve its business climate. It went up in mid-May along Interstate 94 in Moorhead, Minn., which neighbors Fargo.

It read “North Dakota. Open for Business,” and it angered some officials on both sides of the border who thought it too confrontational.

The billboard has been moved down the interstate to a spot near Fergus Falls. The Greater North Dakota Chamber says the move was planned and had nothing to do with the bad reception in Fargo-Moorhead.
