CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA — General Mills, Inc. is considering a continued investment in its Cedar Rapids facility in 2014, which if completed would create 40 new jobs.

The Cedar Rapids facility makes cereal and snacks.
General Mills has asked the state of Iowa for money to help with the proposed $60 million expansion project.
