(Associated Press) North Dakota is promoting its business climate at Minnesota’s expense, and some politicians east of the Red River are not happy about it.

The Greater North Dakota Chamber has started a campaign that mocks proposals in the Minnesota Legislature, including bills that would raise certain taxes. A chamber release said Minnesota politicians are “making a strong case for business to come across the border to North Dakota.”

The first billboard went up Thursday along Interstate 94 in Moorhead, Minn., which borders Fargo. It reads “North Dakota” on the top line and “Open for Business” on the bottom.
