Made in America - That's the theme behind Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar's two day tour. She stopped in Moorhead to talk with business leaders at Stenerson Lumber Company and PortaCo, Incorporated, a manufacturer of hydraulic power units.

The senator helped pass legislation to make it easier for the Small Business Association to lend money. She's also working on a bill called Innovative America. It would give businesses tax credits for donating their equipment to community colleges.

Senator Amy Klobuchar – (D) Minnesota: “Without small business how could you have a thriving community with restaurants with shops and places to go so it's very important to our state.”

Klobuchar says she also supports job training for youth especially in areas like computer science, technology and welding.
