Other recent examples include:

• Apogee’s commercial-glass subsidiary, Viracon, chose to build its $30 million plant expansion in Owatonna instead of Georgia. Minnesota state and local governments offered a $4.9 million tax incentive package and spent $1.4 million to help move a highway. Viracon already has a plant in Owatonna with experienced workers.

• Scott County and the city of Shakopee last year approved a $3 million tax incentive package in return for California-based Shutterfly building a $60 million plant that is supposed to employ more than 300 full-time workers.

• Lutsen Mountains, the resort business near Grand Marais, received about $500,000 from the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board of the roughly $20 million it has used to upgrade and expand its business over the past several years.
