DULUTH — Two buildings in northern Minnesota are now renamed after the late U.S. Rep. Jim Oberstar.
The Duluth International Airport's new terminal will now be known as the James L. Oberstar Terminal.
Also Friday, the Chisholm (CHIS'-uhm) post office was dedicated in memory of Oberstar, a Chisholm native.
U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar was among speakers at both dedications. Klobuchar told WDIO-TV Oberstar was someone who loved politics and government, and "mostly he loved getting things done" for northern Minnesota.
Oberstar helped secure some of the $78 million needed to fund the new terminal. Duluth Mayor Don Ness says the terminal provides about 1,000 aviation jobs.
Oberstar died last year at age 79. The 18-term Democrat was known as a transportation advocate.
