BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The tourism division for the North Dakota Chamber of Commerce says tourism ads brought in $328.3 million in non-resident visitor spending in 2016.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2murVe7 ) that the non-resident visitors contributed $18.7 million to the state’s tax base.

The chamber’s tourism division director Sara Otte Coleman says the campaign featuring actor Josh Duhamel showcased a variety of state amenities revolving around North Dakota history, the outdoors and city attractions.
