CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A state board has approved $3 million in grants and loans for a new barley malting plant in Pine Bluffs.

The Wyoming State Loan and Investment Board approved the funding on Thursday. The board consists of Gov. Matt Mead and four other statewide elected officials.

Plans call for building the facility in the Pine Bluffs Business Park. It would be owned by a local economic development organization and leased to businesses owned by Pine Bluffs residents Gene Purdy and Chad Brown.

The Wyoming Business Council supported the funding for the facility, saying it would help to meet the demand for malt at breweries in the region and also supply malt for distilling whiskey.
