Explore Minnesota makes the case for Minnesota tourism

A new video from Explore Minnesota Tourism argues for increased promotion of tourism in the state, citing the economic benefits. In doing so, they travel throughout the Twin Cities metro and from Red Wing up to Lutsen, highlighting the state's many tourist attractions. Explore Minnesota Tourism would receive a $15,000,000 funding boost from the governor's recent budget proposal, paid for by an increase in the car rental tax from 6.2% to 9.05% (mostly paid by out-of-state visitors, according to the governor).
