DigiKey Bill Makes Progress at the State Capitol 16 Mar 17

Even as the folks back home campaign to save a long time retailer, a delegation from Thief River Falls is working at the State Capitol in St. Paul to grow the community by another one thousand jobs.

City Leaders and Economic Development Officials are lobbying the State Legislature this week for action to support the huge, one million square foot expansion at DigiKey in Thief River Falls.

House File #2183 passed its first committee hurdle Tuesday in the Minnesota House of Representatives along with Senate File #1884 yesterday in the State Senate.

Sponsors of the measures include Representatives Dan Fabian and Deb Kiel in the Minnesota House, Senator Mark Johnson in the Senate.
