Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism President/CEO Nort Johnson stops by KDHL for a visit on AM Minnesota at 9:30 a.m.  There are a number of different topics we will discuss including the work that wasn't completed during the recent Minnesota State legislative session.  The Minnesota Chamber has been touring the state talking about their belief the session was not a productive one.  Nort was in attendance at one of those stops and will share some of the discussion with us.

The deadline to sign up in the new business promotion sponsored by the local chamber was Friday and we can't discuss details about who has applied but we should be able to find out what types of potential businesses are being proposed.  On the economic development front, Nort used to be a member of the Faribault Lakers in his younger days and understands the impact the Minnesota Amateur Baseball Tournament will have on the area when Faribault co-hosts with Dundas in 2022.
