    Providing a pathway for responsible energy development that maintains North Dakota’s beautiful environment and landscape is at the heart of North Dakota’s siting law. It was created by the legislature in the 1970s and has been revisited and adjusted many times since to reflect the ever-changing needs of our state and its dynamic industries.

    Lower utility rates are yet another example of the benefits tax reform has for people of ALL income levels. And since utility costs are baked into the price of all consumer goods, lowering those costs extends even further the economic benefits tax reform has for Americans.

    The Public Service Commission is going to miss Brian Kalk but we wish him all the best on his next great adventure. He is an ever- interesting blend of thoughtfulness, decisiveness, spontaneity, and good humor. We have had a rewarding, interesting and fun four years on the Commission and I take at least partial credit for the fact that he is leaving to join a great research center at our state's finest Flagship University UND!! He finally saw the light!!!

    This morning I taped an interview with NPR Morning Edition host Renee Montagne about the PSCs role in reviewing Dakota Access Pipeline. 30 minutes will be condensed into five airing tomorrow morning! Who knows what will make the cut, but I hope they cover how we examined the key issues of safety and protecting cultural resources.

    The state's new rail safety program is significantly increasing the number of safety inspections on North Dakota's rail system and is a smart investment of existing diesel fuel tax dollars paid by the rail industry to improve safety. I was so pleased to partner with ND DOT in developing this program last session and look forward to showing legislators the progress we have made in a short time.
