ST. PAUL (AP) — The Minnesota Legislature is commissioning a study to compare the climate for small business startups in Minnesota and four neighboring states.

The $65,000 study will look at the cost and delay of state regulations for new small businesses in the services, retail and manufacturing industries.

It will compare regulations and taxes in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Minnesota’s Legislative Coordinating Commission is currently soliciting bids to conduct the study, which has a due date of December 2011.
