FARGO, N.D. (AP) _ The Greater North Dakota Chamber is taking a billboard campaign touting the state's superiority over Minnesota in job creation to the Twin Cities.

Greater North Dakota Chamber CEO Andy Peterson says that a billboard soon will be going up on Interstate 94 to grab the attention of people heading west out of Minneapolis-St. Paul.

The state chamber group initially put up a bright yellow billboard along I-94 just across the Minnesota border in Moorhead. It reads, ''North Dakota. Open for Business.'' It angered some officials on both sides of the border who think it's too confrontational.

That billboard has since been moved down I-94 to Fergus Falls. Peterson said it will be retired, but he didn't say when.
