Good morning economic development friends.  

Welcome to the 72nd weekly edition of Economic Development and Developers in the News.  

I'm on vacation this week, so today's issue is very light and missing most of makes it such fun (and so much work) to put together: it is not sorted by state, and is missing the links to economic developers and their organizations.
