We targeted five industries for growth, industries where we have natural advantages in North Dakota: value-added agriculture, advanced manufacturing, technology-based businesses, energy and tourism. We worked very hard to grow all those businesses, and that’s what’s happening.

We believe that business is the engine that drives the car. You’ve got to build your business base. That means creating more jobs, better paying jobs – that’s how you raise your standard of living.

The Keystone XL project has built strong safety measures into its design with the newest technology. Additionally, 80 percent of the new Canadian oil sands are being developed ‘in situ,’ meaning, it has a similar carbon footprint and emissions as conventional oil wells.
Our Keystone legislation received strong bipartisan support in the Senate. Although it didn’t receive the 60 votes necessary for passage, 56 senators – a majority – voted in favor of the bill. Despite President Obama’s actively lobbying against the bill, we still won the support of 11 Democrats.
