SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

A program that could help draw new business to Sioux City has passed the Iowa legislature.

If it is signed by the governor, the Targeted Jobs program will be extended until 2018.

The program is designed to create higher paying jobs and foster economic growth.

"Whether it's in the Badgerow Building, the museum building, Delta space, or new buildings in the business parks, this will definitely have an impact on the future economic growth of Sioux City," said Marty Dougherty, Economic Development Director.

A study shows that $138 million in new private investment has been created through the program.

About 1500 jobs in Sioux City have been generated.
