Twin Cities in running for offices USDA wants to move out of the D.C. Beltway


March 13, 2019

The Twin Cities is in the running as the landing spot for two major research divisions of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that the Trump administration has pledged to move out of the Washington, D.C., area by the end of the year.

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said Tuesday the list of potential locations for the Economic Research Service and National Institute of Food and Agriculture has been pared down from 136 to 67. The remaining contenders include three proposals in Minnesota, one of which is a joint expression of interest from the University of Minnesota, Greater MSP and the Minnesota Food and Agriculture Initiative.
