HELENA, Mont. — Montana officials sought to capitalize on North Carolina's loss and announced Wednesday that they would be courting PayPal to open an operations center.
In a letter, Gov. Steve Bullock and U.S. Sen. Jon Tester commended the online payment company for its decision to drop plans to invest $2.3 million in a center in North Carolina because a new state law restricts protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
Bullock and Tester invited PayPal to consider bringing the center and its 400 jobs to Montana.
