ND Mill - Grand Forks

The North Dakota House has approved a budget for the state industrial Commission - but most of the debate centered on the elimination of a profit sharing for the Mill and Elevator in Grand Forks. Under the plan mill profits to the state would increase from 50 to 75 percent. Supporters say the move is necessary given the state’s tight financial budget. Critics say the profit-sharing incentive is critical to the employees and making the mill grow.

Around 150 employees would be impacted by the move. The budget was adopted 68-22. It is likely headed to a conference committee.
