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.
