ST. CLOUD - State Senators are in St. Cloud today (Friday) listening to local business owners about job creation.  Today's visit from the Senate Jobs and Economic Growth committee comes the day after President Barack Obama laid-out his job creation plan in front of Congress.

Republican Senator John Pederson of St. Cloud says, as a small business owner himself, he's not excited about the President's plan.

Pederson says the committee is meeting with the Chamber of Commerce, then they'll tour Viking Coco-Cola Bottling Company, and the Boys and Girls Club.
