    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.

    The Public Service Commission is on the frontline of industry and commerce. It's a fun yet serious job that allows our economy to grow, keeps energy rates low, and protects our people and land.

    The Dakota Access pipeline is a project the PSC permitted last January after 13 months of thorough review and public input. We held three widely publicized public hearings to which dozens of local, state and federal agencies were invited. Extensive cultural and environmental studies were conducted and reviewed by experts. Hundreds of people attended and participated in the public hearings. Many changes were made including route changes and requirements for improved third party oversite and reclamation. The pipeline will be constructed largely on private land for which all ND landowners provided voluntary easements. No eminent domain was exercised in North Dakota. The company met the requirements for a permit under ND law, there is a well documented record to support that and the PSC continues to monitor their work for compliance with ND law. I have not posted on this subject because I am not interested in facilitating extreme comments or inappropriate, insensitive banter. People can agree or disagree with this project but no one is persuaded by insults or untruths. However, the attached story provides a rather thorough and balanced update on the status of the project, concerns and possible next steps so it is worth sharing for those who are interested.
