Missoula business leaders: State must preserve economic development program

March 27, 2018View for printing

Local recipients of Big Sky Economic Development Trust Fund grants in Missoula have been wide ranging over the past few years, from an upstart home manufacturing firm to a film studio, both of which used the funding to create new jobs.

And that could place Missoula and much of Montana at a disadvantage when it comes to economic development.
