Question one for Governor Bergen, then our last question for Governor Burgum, and then we're going to a chat with Senator Kevin Kramer here. The question was more of a comet, I guess, And it came in the form of this from a texture. The governor says. We're in great shape, but asked the restaurant's if they're in great shape. People don't want to go out because things are still weird. Governor. You can help that. I think it's too cold One and one is we got one in but just keep doing great work here to make sure we have low numbers. When we have low numbers, and there's loads less community spread, people are more confident about getting out of the community. Second is If we develop a culture of respect for people that are wearing masks, if you're if you're an older couple, and you want to go out, you know for dinner, you may you may want to be worrying about until you get to the You know the booth? You're seated at your table on. We need to respect those people that feel that they want to take a little extra protection protection when they're going out. And then for the business owners, I mean, somebody's donors of, you know, expanded outside. See, they've changed their layout. You know they're doing. You know, you got to take out. I mean, some people have done a thriving business since the beginning of this and I know getting credit, too. Credit to those operators and figured out a way to adjust their business models or those that are, you know, applying for the the emergency resiliency grants from commerce to give them the extra Ability to make the modifications so that they can attract more patrons and do it in a way where everybody feels confident because this does does require us to emergency that requires response in terms of business models and again respect for those people that did have a reason to take more precautions when they go out because I said, the risk of this doesn't fall evenly. On families. They're individuals. We really appreciate the color, taking the time to take those questions. There were, you know, way more comments that we had time for. Maybe we'll try and schedule in for an hour next time to do that, But I sense a great deal of frustration among people. I am frustrated that I believe were doing more damage to business than is necessary by constantly talking about Cove it now you could say Well, Scott, you're doing the same thing. Stop talking about it. You're right. Ah, but what I'm trying to do is at least fight the battle to say. Where is the data? That tells me I should be scared. Where is the data? That tells me I should stay home and lock my doors that never. I don't find that. I see data that says there's a threat there, certainly, but it's not different in you know very big ways from other H one n one, or you know the flu every winter of Look, if you're If your health vulnerable, you know, you're in that in that category. The flu ofall anything, Khun Khun put you into, you know a very difficult situation, So I'm trying. I'm trying. I just want to get us to that point Texture says I'm not interested in Governor Bergen's virtue, signaling And his touchy feely emotions. North Korea Nice. What's going to smart. In all the North Kota groupthink slogans are placing everyone in one group and effectively trying to shame anyone that does not support his narrative. I'm an individual. Not a part of a collective. I'm interested in my God given rights that the Constitution was written to protect And reading. That tells me we're in North Dakota and I I appreciate. I think we've got to keep asking the tough questions there. That one's on Facebook, But we did have one other question for the governor. I'm going to put it up on Facebook because you're really going to like the like The answer. Well, I don't know if you'll like the answer. I know. Um Will there be an D s u football as we know it this ball will there be U nd hockey? This falls? We know what I'll tease this. We don't know, but the governor tells us how that could possibly happen. In the end the answer, and we'll have that for you on our website, Facebook and and all the rest without any further ado Senator Kevin Kramer's here on the talk radio town hall, Senator. Welcome back. How are you? I'm well, Thank you, sky. I'm Especially well, because I'm in Bismarck today or as I like to call it normal Ville. I love going to shields.

"I go to Middle tracker dot com one question at the top what advice do you have for governor Burgum how should the re opening of North Dakota look how when why Marty in might not go what's your answer are you there yeah morning guys morning all these construction workers these guys should be working right now I mean they're outdoors I gotta buy lunch they're going to help the fast food industry that I don't see any reason why these guys camped out working right now construction workers here say instruction workers landscapers but if you're working outdoors yeah where do you work well along with couple things here one on construction workers working I've seen a fair amount of action going on yeah I know landscaper guys that I know are working on and do your thing landscapers to yep okay you know I I am because I agree with the I think it's probably individually up to maybe some of the businesses on whether they're doing it or not and again I hope people can be trusted to just be smart about it died did you hear the story and New York City is actually called a rush one day where a guy was trying to construction project in this is back in November December time frame where they had a crew working inside a doing some interior work and there were two hundred two fifty something like that I forget the actual numbers of the construction workers and the flu went through them like crazy and they all went to the doctor after they got the flu the doctors to go home stay at home of course they didn't came back to work so bunch of them I got sick well enough coming back but they believe now that what they had was coronavirus so I'm not I'm I'm not we had some real bad January it was brutal explored for days and we had one guy that was the only and he had a real bad one though I'm pretty sure you are all the bad did you have the bad respiratory stuff it is over now yeah I have a call out to them I was bored about four days well he got over it if passed everybody slowly we were Bruschi decal Marty I think money's point is you know okay landscapers hello come on a construction here maybe go do it be smart if you're interior than masked whatever little road construction done like right now there's nobody on the road there you go yeah you got social distancing their how golfing I mean why do we punish golf courses give people mental health break ran a lot of pain a man pay online do the honor system I mean come on why can't we put the plexiglass up in the pro shop right like they do at Walmart you know where else tester says city forestry guy told me they're working to in three days just because of the virus this week he's only working one how's that affecting the virus are interesting let's see yours is freedom minus rights your rights stop will infringe on mine he's taking exception I guess with my freedom plan I'm saying in anything we have the freedom to be stupid sometimes with the freedom before I believe most people are the responsible use their freedom I really do so I I don't think we need in and by the way if they don't or if they you know threaten your in any way shape or form and obviously there ought to be things there but let's be let's be smart about this let's be smart about this for grandma can't find it but I had one here after this said what a B. first is anything dealing with those and transportation so they have the services they need.

"Eight Callum's got sent you on the blank sheet and the recovery and by the way we have a son of responses on Facebook about this all of which you're very reasonable but there is smart so I'm gonna share some of those as well all this related to governor Burgum's announcement later today I want the reopening process will look like what happens on the twentieth of April one the current orders expire what we do how do we do it all at up we'll hear about coming up here just a bit but the one area that I don't think is received as much attention as it should have been in my attention I mean actually considering not just saying right because the people say well good mental health issue thirteen you know will make sure you get help or you know what what what but but really just understanding it's not it's not enough to say get help you know when when when when somebody has a mental health disease you don't just pick up the phone to get help I mean you you need friends that recognize say something's wrong let's do this you know what a different things it in right now there's so much disruption in daily life what's all that mean these are all questions for our guest Dr Jo Ellison she is a essential health mental health counselor absolutely incredible you beg god to have you here on the program today so you will know this situation well put us inside the mind of of someone with a mental health issue and a wife as they know it being disrupted like it has the last six weeks or so yeah I think a lot of folks who are already here I think dealing with depression and anxiety are seeing an increase in those symptoms especially because you know whether what we're hoping that people are able to deal and to fight depression and anxiety is usually found getting out doing things seeing people are being active and all of that has really been turned on its head in the last couple of weeks here so it's even harder to you to engage in the things that that we know work so yeah depression anxiety has increased there's all there's a lot to take in in terms of the media and and facts and articulate to what to think about what's what's happening if someone is in that state could you just describe depression anxiety battling with these mental health issues and now work from home or on employment or or whatever and of course in some cases can even get the care that they need but is it is it naive of us to think we'll just get help just to just to just get help as it is I mean you know go see a doctor it isn't as easy as having a pain in your side is it I know I mean I think there is a lot of stigma out there related to mental health as much as we're working on improving that I think there are a lot of people who are hesitant to share these things with their family members or or with their doctors and they think it's important to you and check in on our on our loved ones and and really ask how we're doing we are the tendency to detail finer we're getting along but to really try and get that they're real answers and encourage people to seek help I think a big part of it too is to be honest about our own histories you know statistically most of us have honored some some version of a depressive episode or something's ITN at different times stressors in our lives and it's important to you normalized FAD and help people realize that it's it's not as bad as terrible thing that shouldn't be shared but something that we can actually work on and and then they can get help for when our ancestors great grandparents some cases grandparents settled this part of the the world do you think the percentage of them that had mental health issues was about the same or is it drastically more non SO why what what what white why do you are we hearing more about this because we're smarter about it and recognize it and want to make sure people understand you know don't be stigmatized get the help you need we're here for care for you know different than a heart disease or diabetes or anything else and or is it you know did they just say well just be tough you know I mean it seems to me there's a lot more of it now today in my right well I think there are many many studies that would suggest that there are plenty of psychiatric illnesses that have been pretty similar in their prevalence over time without a lot of change now I think where you're seeing maybe some increase or you're noticing these things is that you know we we also developed depression and anxiety as a result of stressors so you know it's not just that biologically based brain there are aspects of mental health that are as a result of the things that are going on in our lives and there's certainly a lot of stressors that go on in our lives actually people has only exponentially increased through social media and things like that which can create additional stressors and are different different work environments and the demands put on us about related to you you know what our kids are delaying our water different family members are doing in the end they care we have to provide for aging parents or things like that there's all sorts of things right that can add to our our policemen and stress us out or create Celanese symptoms as well what would you say to someone listening right now in the way of I guess things that would give you a pretty good indication that there are some mental health issues that they should actually see a professional for baby they don't recognize as that what what what what I mean and and the reason I'm doing this I I want people out there that might not realize that that the the pressure they're feeling the the disruption their feeling is that is that your mental illness that it's something that that needs attention of the there can be held for that it isn't Hey I gotta just tough this out what what what date what what what what should they watch for which they get help if they if I happen great question really great question so I think what we you know what I'm looking for and when I'm talking to someone to see if we have like a disorder or we have something that's curious and willing to help is army really distressed and upset right as there is this getting in the way of them functioning brain are they unable to you create or maintain a normal routine are there I know that's hard especially right now during all of this but is it getting in the way of being able to attend work if you're trying to work from home is he getting in the way of sleeping brain is dead interrupting your your appetite are you always feeling drained and exhausted you know are you being really hard on yourself and creating a lot of you know negative self talk rate where it would be if you were saying those things other people will be very and difficult or being really hard on ourselves those types of things I guess is what I would have people looking for we're only just sort of it starts well and it sort of creature on and we don't notice that intelligence will really enhance term so I think we're looking for the destruction of of those typical things that allowing you to function in our lives and we were not able to function in that same way that's a good indicator that turns up so just remember that take that to heart and right now is a challenging time for folks that have the mental health because all the healthcare systems obviously been a disrupted about but I understand of the century you're all in on the on the video visits right so what there is there is care available by video from wherever you're at now all right correct yes we are doing virtual visits our our entire behavioral department here in the Fargo office as well as our at our other locations like we have office and he translates in park rapids and Asia to our our professionals that are staffing offices are available via virtual health bills and that makes it even easier to to get to us and to have yeah we even have some same day availability so if you called today you know there is a need to help they need to check in with somebody there would be somebody available for you now there is help and there is no shame in getting help you know interact there really is and that's what I really want folks to know none of none whatsoever for whatever reason this is to become one of those issues that you know you think nothing of anybody that's battling cancer battling diabetes whatever at two disabled what what you know are you seeing the best doctors are you get a second opinion are you what but when it when it comes to mental health issues you tend to just as far to say well I don't want anybody know because it's a sign of weakness or you know I'm not right in the head or whatever all those things that did most of that self inflicted because it's just it's a you know you talk to people who go through some terrible things we had the young man to work for us here that you know just how awful childhood and he had you know little damage to his brain from all of that abuse over the years not physical but you know in the actual brain and you know you get the point where you're suicidal from it you don't make any rational decisions nothing and then to see something like that be able to get help and have you know either medicine or the counseling to deal with all those issues I knew a person emerges you know I'm a flower blooms so what did please think long and hard about to getting help they may need and the B. B. tough by getting the help you need during these challenging times as well appreciate you sharing that with us for the doctor gill Allison a sense that mental health counseling member they're doing virtual business now so it's super.

"I don't know about you but I am look waking up to about forty is the phrase the new normal are saying the restrictions that are in place here in the heartland of America are going to be here longer than I thought I just did a little check on the calendar okay governor Burgum said the you know six to ten weeks I'm a worst case scenario side but there are worst case there is worse than that so let's pick ten weeks is worst case scenario June third as June third all right all right South Dakota governor Christie gnome just told us it'll be years let's be honest it'll be years have a devastating impact on state budgets on economy on everything six months before individuals have anything close to normal I don't know I don't know if I believe all of that I think that someone cut back faster than others I I don't know about the same way coming today but these people are looking at models are looking at all statistics they're looking at how this is it you know so these are these are interesting times in which we live don't forget if you have a question or comment twenty four hours a day seven days a week you want to celebrate somebody would that be the buffalo spirit that has most folks in in North Dakota it's in their DNA they just go into the store just like the buffalo that's what they do and always has petroleum celebrate him call us leave a comment eight five five two zero zero seventeen seventy six next up on the program a member of president trump's cabinet the secretary of the department of education is with us today on the program walking gene Scalia sectors delay thanks for being here yeah it's got to be with you and it's it's the labor department I have right now I worked years ago at the education department but I'm I'm labor secretary now you know I knew that but been doing that all day that's the kind of the corona virus impact on my brain here I guess of the anyway I I've been in labor I think is the the the central issue too what worries me most when this is done we got to do what we gotta do on the health side I got all that but what what are we gonna look like as a country coming on the other side of that I've heard estimates you know as high as thirty percent unemployment what are your models tell you what we know it's going to go up significantly obviously hope for a short period of time Scott but it you know what you're saying a moment ago it it's critical right now is difficult as it may seem to follow the guidance that being laid down by UP governor Burgum and a public health authorities so that we can not beat the virus and unfortunately that's just dealing a real blow to American business right now and that's that's putting people out of work now the deal it was up struck early this morning in the Senate that bill I think it's going to be really valuable relief for American workers and American businesses there's a lot of money there for unemployment insurance but but better yet there's up money there at the help businesses stay afloat and and for them to continue to pay their workers you know it's it's good it's going to be a it's gonna be tough stretch but I think you're right that we do need to focus on once we turn that corner and and put our economy in a position where able to spring back and and get back to the really high level of productivity that our economy had just weeks ago I'm not sure the provision but I believe the dollar amount is three on fifty billion dollars in there for businesses five hundred individuals or last where they would go to their bank they would say here's my payroll here's my essential expenses they'd receive a loan that converts to a grant if they keep that work force in place if that works as designed in and please correct me if I stand anything incorrectly that would eliminate the need for a lot of the the unemployment rate for not it what and I think the outcome you just just described I think you described the program really pretty accurately Scott the idea is that there would be a federal backed loan that would cover your cop pay roll and also utilities mortgage it to help the business to stay afloat provided that day but keep their workers on payroll that did that loan is forgiven and and and look I think it's more valuable if we can keep an attachment between the employer or the employee employers it find it hard to find really good reliable employees sometime so we can keep that relationship it's good for the employer and of course is good for the employee to to you stay in touch with the employer rather than go to the unemployment insurance system but they have to there is a lot more funding be put into that unemployment insurance system to sense now this is something that happened to us it did it did it came to us externally it isn't it sad that said it's an invisible enemy and it's just really disruptive we don't want American workers have to pay the price for that we're talking with the president trumps labor secretary Eugene Scalia with us today on that what's on your mind tell me a little bit about what you're seeing on the unemployment claims to this point what we what you know I know what I'm Francis in North Dakota as I'm sure you're aware we are of the second biggest oil producing state in the country and that over half the taxes paid in the entire state of North Dakota come from the oil and gas industry so when gas plummeted as a result of a you know share war between Saudi Arabia and Russia and and the she'll play in the U. S. it hurts here big time and that that combined with a corona virus market issues I mean you're talking about oil literally drawing about twelve dollars at the at the at the at the well head right now a barrel so it's it's scary times and the you know the that wave started before the coronavirus waving some of these mandated shutdowns what he's seeing on the numbers by the way I had a good conversation with governor Burgum last week I called to talk to him about some things that we were doing to make unemployment insurance more widely available some flexibility as we want to make sure the states we're aware of and he was filling me in on the impact that the oil price war has had already on your employment markets North Dakota obviously he's focused on that and concerned about it we we we released our unemployment numbers tomorrow morning it's got to be these are the numbers that are provided by the state showing how many more people have signed up for unemployment over the past week and we know it's going to be just much larger than we've seen work coming out of a period where the economy was so strong we had record low unemployment we had rising wages we're creating jobs and extraordinary pace that we created two hundred and seventy three thousand jobs in the nation in January and February was blowing away the experts expectations at the time but now look we're seeing a very tough challenging reversal and so we know we're gonna see some high unemployment numbers the good news is that the the problems that businesses are experiencing right now are not a flaw in their business model well it's not a some deep flaw in our financial system it's it's a virus that is wreaking havoc but once we beat that back but we should be in a good position economically to get back to where we were just just a few weeks ago about a minute left but I do want to ask you related to the unemployment numbers and the programs the governor did mention your call by the way it is for the daily briefing and as I recall there was some provisions made and waving away waving the a waiting period also are increasing the amount where you normally have a percentage of of the salaries are those special things for the state by state those changes being made the changes are made state by state but what we did just a couple weeks ago and when I called on the governor to make sure he was aware up was we made sure states knew they had the flexibility to do some of the kinds of things that you're just describing Scott and so detector of federal state partnership in the unemployment area but we we wanted states to know that they have that flexibility but we also want them to know that we're making what we call dislocated worker grants available to the states which can also provide some additional on unemployment insurance coverage or job training funds to help people by train for new work when I worked at had is lost because of the national emergency like we're experiencing want to have you back and talk about how this will come back when we're all done but it can come back as quick as they went away Canada I I'd like to think so and I think we need to do everything now to look look toward that day be ready for it.

"Thanks, joe. Nice. Hugh. One quick comment. I think somebody called and followed up something they heard Todd talking about. On. The afternoon. K fire cafe and said, hey, something about the suicide that prompted a lot of questions that come from all of us. So we appreciate that very much. So onto the topic of research you've been university president you've been a governor. So I don't know who's better you've been secretary of agriculture. And I mean, can we think of can we think of a better example, anywhere than the value of research as pertains to agriculture your farm to ten years ago with farm does the day or how much more we get in the way of productivity off of the land. Phenomenal isn't it is the nominal and the piece of legislation? We're talking about Scott is house Bill one three three three house Bill thirteen thirty three. And it isn't just researched Bill is it technology Bill. And that's you know, I think that's what the conversation that we need to have is where do we invest in North Dakota's future? Where's what's going to bring our economy? What's going to bring our culture? But it's going to happen in the future in agriculture energy in manufacturing. We know where's that come from its technology increased? And we need to put some dollars into the research capacity to be able to do that. I started on this trail last year. Visiting with the governor governor Burgum and our chancellor chancellor Marquette about the effort of funding technology research in the state, and there seemed to be all kinds of programs to do. So yet things that commerce the paramount things that the Bank and North Dakota things in the university system, you know, and there was about forty five million dollars or more in this current by any of that were attached to these programs, but there wasn't a coordinated effort. There wasn't a focus. There wasn't anything. That was was saying this is what fits North Dakota. We don't want to do the research that goes to California, you know, those kinds of things so we put together a working group of of private sector, folks. And and government agency people spent a year talking about. You know, what technologies worked for North Dakota? What are the focus to be? If we invest our dollars. Where are we going to get the best return in North Dakota was gonna fit jobs and careers in the future? So that led to the work that was done. When Representative Mike navy was generating this Bill thirteen thirty three. He incorporated the work that we did in working on that. So that's the focus target technology. Research dollars to be meaningful for return, North Dakota jobs careers than economy. Now, this is going to sound really elitist and flush, but it's not a lot of money time. A lot of money when you talk about, you know, the dollars to invest in different priorities in the state of North Dakota right now this originally, I guess was three million dollar Bill over the house. The Senate said come on. Let's make it fifteen. So you can do something with it. And get it going. But we're not talking about a lot of money. Are we in the in the I'm saying dollars you can put in from the taxpayer for a return? This is a good investment. And the the difficult things got in government. One of the hardest. Things is maintaining the current while investing in the future never enough money for everything. Right. So where do you put the dollars currently? And where do you put them in the future this, obviously investment future and initial Bill actually had twenty five million dollars in it for research grants. Some legislators didn't like that at moved to be alone program, not a grant program, which pulled out the universities. For instance, another things then it was cut down from twenty five million to fifty million is fifteen million cut down from twenty five to fifteen then now down to five and if you do five million as well, not even to it. As I mentioned before the programs in this current by any total up to over forty five million dollars. Now, we're talking about twenty five million dollars fifty twenty five in my opinion. But in that's what was in the original Bill the reason for that, lower amounts. We go in and say, let's get forty five million twenty five million because we can be focused because this outlines five areas of investment in technologies says if we invest in these we're gonna get our best returns if it should be combination of loans and grants. There's a committee set up that should be operated by the Bank, North Dakota. There's controversy about that in the halls of the legislature. But we need to we need to.

"You about the west river vet clinic heading there, celebrating fifty years of service. One of our listeners said, he's got us a great story. Why should talk about? So we're going to today on what's on your mind continue Chad now with governor Doug Burgum from the White House talking about the efforts by governor Burgum and Catherine Burgum, specifically on some reforms here that much pass that come come to be known here. Also things happening on criminal Justice reform, prisons prison reform, a nationwide celebration the first step back. So the governor talking a little bit about our prison reentry programs here in how they work. If someone that it appears support specialist is supporting gets a job, then they get paid more find a place to live. They get paid for if they get the driver's license. They get paid more. So called the social determinants of success in people are cheating, those those measurable objectives. Like a job a place to live and transportation, if you that they're they're way way way less likely to be back committing a crime. And therefore, they're not going to be back in a system where we're paying for their healthcare came forty one thousand dollars a year. They're going to be in the system doing a job paying taxes and being part of society. And so there been about nine hundred people already North Dakota that participated this in the last year, and there's. Dialogue at the session going on right now about expanding. This not be about just people coming out of the the correction system coming out of prison. But this would be a chance for us to apply these same success actors to people that might be headed into prison. So he could use it as diversion tactic for first time offenders for nonviolent addiction related crimes and keep people out of the system because when you know, people go into go into the system doesn't guarantee that they're going to get better. Of course, we're trying to do we're trying to make better not better prisoners because ninety nine percent of the people to go into prison in North Dakota. Come back out again, all of our best interests for us to be investing money to make them into better. Neighbors productive citizens 'cause being a model prisoner who's a model prisoner when they're NBN prison. And then when they come out. To participate society themselves right back in prison. Again, that's not not the morally right thing to do. And it's also the expensive thing to do. As you. Find yourself. In the middle of this, very important work. You know, talking about North Dakota's doing through a covering the other things as well. Have been passed even the session with the president celebrating the first step act, which of course, does a lot of things to provide opportunities for these inmates to to get the education. They need the training. They need mentorship programs. Did you find yourself sitting back a little bit and saying this is why it goes through the blood, sweat and tears of running for governor and being governor to be able to have this kind of an outcome. Well, absolutely near you know, you're listening to you know, a president who wouldn't have had to run for president. You're sitting behind, you know, Abakan injured, you know, Kushner, you know, he's, you know, get acquainted himself to this to the impossible tax the prison reform. I mean, they said here's a guy who's not, you know, he's not has not coming from the government sector is not a Senator is not a congressman. He's not whatever, you know. He'll never get it done. Jerry. Got it must. You got a standing ovation at the first meeting when he was at the president of muscle lasted a minute because everybody knows he's the guy that really drove an engineered the whole first step with the with the support of the president. But to to see that. And then you look around the room, and you look at the the coalition I was sitting next to van Jones who who you know, you know, who's been outspoken. You know, critic of the president at times on some things, and he's like, you know, jumping on his feet and applauding and cheering and everybody in the room is motionless and people are I mean, when you got someone who's been let out of prison after twenty five years saying, you know, I wanna give the president a hug because I am so grateful that you signed Bill it's changing my life. And I'm back with my, you know, my family. I mean, it is, you know, these are the days when you say, hey, with people working hard and keeping the ideology out of the room and trying to focus on why we're doing this, which is, you know, change people's lives and do things better and smarter. Not just doing because that's the way we've been doing in in when she spoke. I mean, she was. Not just, you know, changing changing changing minds, and that's what's really rewarding and really fun really fun to be to be there and see that first hand. And it's why it's why this is democracy is remarkable thing. And when it works, it's beautiful. Well, you represent as well as the first lady everywhere, you go we appreciate very much and always always great to have our governor at the White House in the middle of making a difference. Thanks so much giving well and shout out to everybody at our team in North Dakota. 'cause it's fun fun to have the president gives shout outs. North Dakota's one of the states. And he said he said we're trying to do at the federal states in this room that are out in front of us. We don't want to let them get too far out front of us because I know they're they're making great changes. So, you know, again, having administration that listens to learn from the states, you know, from the platforms of innovation that are going on at the state level is really really remarkable. And really refreshing. And and you know, gives me hope for. Country because sometimes you can time a rapid change. You wanna have decentralized approaches in when I hear what people are doing in Michigan and Kentucky and Mississippi. It gets me motivated come back because I got a notebook full of ideas. We're doing great stuff here. But I got some ideas about some more stuff we can do to stay ahead of federal form and catch up or or lead some of the other states on how we're doing this. Great. Maybe the president come see firsthand was having a North Dakota. Again, we take another visit tune would we we absolutely wouldn't. It was great having sector cost here last week. Who is very, you know, seventy three percent of the people that entered the workforce last year are people that previously weren't participating in the workforce. So we're getting people off the bench and into the workforce. And you know, in some of the people that are, you know, coming out of prisons still have barriers to various employment, whether it's over zealous licensing requirements or against. Some of the, you know, housing driver's license barriers education barriers. So you know, he's been a a cost. It's been a fighter, you know. Bringing those crates have congressman trainer or now Senator framer brings Kosta here for a full day in both Fargo, and Bismarck that was right. And we had a chance today, Catherine. I do invite both Jerry here talk about the work that they're doing because of also people involved in some of the workforce issues, and it just it's great to have an administration that knows about or KOTA knows. We're doing great work. Thanks again, coming really appreciate the time on a busy night. Thank you, Scott. Thanks for all you do and have a great evening. Governor Doug Burgum from the White House and reforms here getting the attention of a White House. Love that. I love the invite for. Jerod, Ivanka come on. Right..

"Thank you for that another hour a busy one. Indeed, we're going to chat with Ron nessen north Petroleum Council. We're gonna share with the public and national committee about what now on the mullahs report, we have rich Warner the Senate majority leader, Taco Bell operation prairie dog and infrastructure. Bill at the bottom of the hour, we'll wrap with Chris Berg from a point of view and. Read some more of your hilarious tax takes more of your calls at eight hundred two two eight zero five five zero Ron nessen is here from the North Dakota Petroleum Council. Happy Monday, Ron how're you? My scott. I'm fantastic today. I'm good. And I'm glad to see the oil and gas industry fearing as well as it is in the in the legislative session. It is an industry sometimes it has to scratch and claw for a little recognition as to the amount of economic impact. It has on the state, and the it is brought to to the those that dole out taxpayer money. So good to see. Well. Thanks cow. We we really didn't have a big big agenda this legislative session. Most of it is just you know, he's sensually. He'll let us let us do. What we do. We harvest every day. And I think things are going very well. Across the western North Dakota. Obviously, we we know we need continued investment mended to the natural gas infrastructure. The tribal tax Bill, though, was probably the one Bill Scott was was just. Significant. I I can't tell you that the significance have in good tribal state relations. But but more importantly a stable tax climate in which if I don't care what business here, and if you think that your tax can double on any given day, you're hesitant to make that next step. So you go and baby steps, right? You just so this will help some of the infrastructure to capture more natural gas up there. Plus, the geology is fantastic. And and the the tax split that the state came up with eighty eighty percent of the tribe on tribal lands. Eighty percent to the state on on state fee lands on within the reservation that is going to spur investment in certainly traveled. Chairman Mark FOX did a great job as did our legislative leaders in now to Senator Jordan Kenya up there from Belden North Dakota. Who's in that district was the prime sponsor that Bill, and I think brought brought everybody together. But the end of the day eighty four to eight in the North Dakota house of representatives the Bill I suspect it'll be signed this week by the governor and. That's a big deal. That's three hundred thousand barrels a day that's more than virtually. More than about five or six states produced. And that's what's being produced on that reservation. That's probably ten to fifteen thousand jobs, as you know, the the unemployment rate on the reservation has tumbled from big numbers virtually nil now and tribal businesses are growing, but it really helps all those North Dakota service companies that are domiciled in mine not entirely again Williston watt for Dickinson kill deer that reservation present some of the best geology in the bucket that got them through the downturn. And in two thousand fourteen in those oil prices are gonna fuck fluctuate. We know that. So you have to have those core properties that continue will, you know, investment will continue to flow there, even when prices drop so that was a big deal. Great support out of the north legislature. And of course, governor Burgum was he was fantastic throughout throughout this whole deal. Dealing with the tribe end up putting this deal together. Tell me a little bit about what you think is left in the way of growth. Slash investment as a result of this. So, you know, it's already been an incredible story when you look at the Donut hole that existed with all development around those tribal lands, then they get into it. As you say. There was a slowdown. And now we have the natural gas. I situation requires more investment. What what what what do you see what how much investment how much more growth as is possible? There will as I said that that represents about twenty percent of our total production right now. And and those wells continue to come in specifically, not west segment, you know, really that keen to mandatory down to kind of north of killed your there that has become really the epicenter of of the some of the best of the best anywhere in the world. So if you're doing business there, and you've got a drilling rig or two operating you may add a drilling rig. If he'd know the certainty is there now that was really the key to that Bill. And of course, you're gonna you're gonna you're midstream company that comes in and has a contract with with you for your gas. They're going to they're going to be more bullish on building. More investment building the pipeline is expanding the natural gas processing facilities that take that gas off reservation. So I think there's there's good things. And of course, you know, the revenue increases back to the tribe will be significant and that will help the tribe deal with with their many issues just like the state house, but the reality is it doesn't cost state anything because a rising tide lifts all boats. When you got more certainty. Think it's going to attract more investment you'll grow production. The state will still retain where it's at. But without that investment will flee because you you just can't continue to invest there. If if the tax rate goes up and you're paying a twenty percent tax. Plus you pay at twenty to twenty four percent royalty. Off the top without anything else. That's forty percent of your of your gross. So that mouth just doesn't work. So I think everybody realized that and and prior to the two thousand seven legislature implementing a tax agreement between the state and drive. There had not been a well drilled there for twenty seven year on believable twenty-seven years because of the uncertainty how important tax policy is to to business, and and to everyone great point an agency that has been I think somewhat misunderstood because people don't understand. Why would we want our own EPA? But the department of environmental quality is a reality now. And one of the one of the victories, you're claiming this year is more resources for that. But the local component of that is why that's such a such such a positive change right to be able to deal with a local environmental regulation versus federal. So yes, Scott what we're talking about is the department of environmental quality, which prior to the two thousand seventeen legislature was. Part of the North Dakota department of health. It was kind of swallowed up in a bigger agency. And and the the wisdom of the two thousand seventeen legislature and governor Burgum was to step that department out and give it its own its own nameplate in its own operations. And and the significant of that to everyone in North Dakota from agriculture to energy to everyone is that as you see happening with the current PA, they are shedding policies. They're saying, you know, what states you do environmental quality better than we can North Dakota has the cleanest air water in the country. And why should why should we try and do that on one size fits all policy from Washington? So they allow states to retain primacy on issues like air water and soil quality as well. So we're the best of the best than that. Why wouldn't we want North Dakota do that? And it's a big lift to get the North Dakota legislature to add employees into agencies, and essentially grows. That's honestly, the biggest problem, right? When when the. Says hey, you can do it. 'cause you're better at it. You have to have the resources to do it. They will not give it to you. If you do not have have the resources, so this legislative session. Dave Glatt and the governor's office, and and really the the energy industry as a whole went to work with a legislature saying, you know, what let's continue to give North Dakota more resources because what what's happening is the EPA is essentially saying states, you're going to get this. And we don't want the big federal bureaucracy. And of course, this is extremely important. If you look down the road, whether it's two years or or six years in terms of something like the green new deal who do you think does it better North Dakota way better in all of these regards? But Secondly, do we want the federal policies without any North Dakota input? If you have primacy, I think you have more input and more ability to regulate under North Dakota, terms and conditions rather than something that's going to be pushed down from the from Washington through ups in Denver, then back to North Dakota. So I think it's super big deal. And then plot the legislature for adding the resources and. You know, I think you're going to see more of those policies come back to the states and North Dakota. We ready for with they have enough employees in enough resources only about a minute left. But I want to ask you about, you know, the oil and gas industry North Dakota's jobs juggernaut. No doubt about it has been for many, many years continues to be are you getting the workforce you need? No, scott. We we're not in recruitment is tough. Is, you know, the western communities are are growing and adding more things for you. Don't more attractions to bring families here. I think that that is you gotta have a place. People wanna live. We've got the jobs. We've got gotta have a place people want to live. It's not two thousand nine rusty economy in the country is good. So we're seeing a lot of work though, in terms of workforce development, skills initiatives, parents understanding that I can send my son or daughter to Bismarck state college for two years. I just talked to apparent this weekend cost about seven to twelve thousand dollars. They graduated got a job at a North Dakota ethanol plant in a power process technology. For about eighty thousand dollars those jobs in North Dakota's natural gas, plants are going to grow and grow and grow. So two year degree, Bismarck state college. Those are the types of programs that you're seeing some discussion in legislature, get more high schools to to alert and engaged students in the skill sets. Whether it's traditions or. Electron IX welding truck driving. But the things like power process power plant technology. Those things are all great. We we all want our sons and daughters to be engineers and geologists doctors. But these job opportunities that we have come in North Dakota are real and we've got schools that are full of kids right now, we need to make those kids fully aware of some of the programs that we've got we've got somebody from MBA energy, Pat Brunelli that you ought to have on and talk about getting kids excited about opportunities in North Dakota. Because I certainly certainly helped my three teenagers can can get that.

"All right. Here's that letter. I was telling you about this one is from a stark weather, North Dakota listener it says, I'm sending you this Email concerning governor governor Burnham's lack of willingness to use his power to call off school for the entire state during this extreme cold snap. I was thinking you could bring your subject up on what's on your mind. This has been done before by previous governor, many districts have already canceled classes, I'm sure there will be districts that will remain open though, not wanting to use a storm day in case of needing it at a later date, if the governor would call off the days would be forgiven with no effect on the school calendars to make the day's up. We live in North Dakota. And obviously cancel school every time it gets a little chilly outside. But this seems an exception to the rule should sampling happening to school Boston installs on the country, sixty Rebollo weather. No one's able to get there for twenty thirty minutes and the kids have no heat for that period. Can you imagine how cold it would be on that bus by the time help arrives? It's not like bosses or the warmest and cold conditions to start with when they are running. It seems to me to be a place the governor should step in. Show some leadership seeing this as affecting the whole state, and either classes are canceled or simply say, I'll forgive the days of January twenty ninth and thirtieth. If you should choose the closure school because of this dangerous cold and very disappointed and governor Burgum choice here. Thanks, scott. Love what's on your mind. You and Todd keep up the great work. Thank you stark weather for the for the note appreciate that. And. I'm curious what others think about this? I believe the government closest to the people is the best government because you have a chance to affect it. You can look the white. You know, look. City council members and school board members and. Superintendents in the white of the eyes and say, hey, what's going on here? And I often hear schools don't want to be micromanaged. On issues from above state federal guideline, sometimes consume a lot of time and money don't necessarily have the best interest of the students in a particular community in mind. So it's it's a it's a conflict. I I hear you on the on the storm days. But wouldn't that be a case of saying? Yes, it is North Dakota. So let's add more storm days. Let's extend the calendar out. And just have more storm days. Should we need them? Is part of the calendar. I don't know why it comes back on the governor to do it. I don't know that that that that'd be my take. Other states. There have been emergencies as a result of this cold. I don't know what do you want? You. Tell me. Derek? In new Salem has thought on this year next on what's on your mind? Go ahead, Derrick. Hey, Scott, say just my thoughts. But I mean there I'm a parent and they're your children. If you think it's too dangerous. The parents stay from working keep your kid at home. If you don't want them driving on the school bus, just keep your kid at home. I guess I mean, they don't need the government. It's all you ought to keep your kids. The safest I guess that's just my thought yesterday. The wind supposed to pick up, and it was cold and my wife couldn't get off work. I did. And I kept my kids home. Just because I wanted to be safe. I guess that's my thoughts. You'd like to see that a little more seems like we've sort of gone soft on a lot of that where we expect the school to make the decision for us. And and then so no. No that's an inconvenience because you know, I'm I'm working and. Okay. North Dakota's going to be cold like this. And if you have kids, I think Derek you nailed it on the head. I'll just do what I need to do to be here. Thoughts. I guess not the most convenient thing sometimes, but it's your kids. So make that decision. Yup. Well, said Derrick thank you, eight hundred two eight zero five five zero the note Todd said, hey, there any chance you and Scott could influence governor Burgum to forgive the school. Casper relations tomorrow, I believe in you to get it done. And again, that's still could be done. The schools could petition to say, here's our hardships. So because it was extreme weather. Can we not had those count against the school this? I guess I need to know more about putting the school's calendars together. But would it make sense to just expect some years is going to be a little more and? Have those words extending the calendar out? And if you. Done sooner than school could end sooner. But I don't know it seems to. Injection because I know in Bismarck. It's was March twenty second was or whatever. Is the day that they're gonna have school when they weren't going to. I mean, what's what's the big objections? Everybody have a trip plan then or what's going on. Texter says, Amen to the caller saying parents make the decision about school and their children, Derek is so right? Texture says I eaten multiple meal. Cocoa blasters hot cereal on days like this effects of the kick in about an hour after consumption. I'm not sure I want to know in what way, but hopefully is keeping you warm.

So United ran twelve thousand tests through some big data machines, and they found a workaround fewer lines when boarding United reduced the boarding lines to to from five and is urging travelers to wait until they're boarding group.

And the first lady, and I was just amazed. Well, NASA's right word overtaken with enthusiasm for the work that they were doing there. There are a lot of creative solutions coming out of North Dakota. And I thought why don't we give them a chance to tell us about what they're doing up there? I I how big is to cut how many people live their lives. Ask the thirty third governor. Governor Doug, Burgum and end the first lady, Katherine Bergman. Welcome guys. How many people are in North Dakota. Seven hundred seventy five thousand got there you go. I think that's the amount of people in my my apartment building. That's amazing. Well, it's a great state. But we've got we cover seventy one thousand square miles. So one of the challenges album, we're trying to big issues like addiction and recovery is you know, how to deliver services across not only our our metro areas. But also our ruler is one of the challenges that we face every day is distance. And they've got a they have a what what's the name of the woman that was around your social services mental health services. Yeah. Catherine. So Pam Pam is is they've got somebody heading up. This organizing the services entered isn't an enlightened operational. Go ahead, Catherine tell your piece of this. Well, gosh, you know, I am so grateful for the opportunity to focus on addiction and recovery in our state, and I've been in recovery for over sixteen years now. And so, you know, I'm able to help talk about the disease the chronic disease of addiction and hell lemonade the shame and stigma in our state, and I really feel like we're making a difference. You know, we have we've done the first ever completed the first ever stigma survey survey to measure, the baseline of sigma in our state, and that will really help it for moving the needle and making the difference moving forward. And governor Burgum. You described to me also the the special sort of challenges of dealing with autonomous nations within your borders and trying to help them with these issues as well. Yes. I let me just say to Dr drew. Thank you so much on behalf of the first lady and myself and everybody that Senator statewide conference having you here talking about that addiction is a disease. It's not a choice, the brain science prediction, again, all of that really helps us move the conversation forward. But yes, of course, we have we have some very proud historic and successful tribal nations within our borders. But they're also one of the populations that has been touched just like the rest of our state because we feel addiction is touching. You know, every family every community and every organization our state in one of the things we're also trying to do dishes. We battle addiction recovery is develop partnerships with the tribal nation. And the first lady herself has been doing a lot of outreach with the tribal youth of the big big issues there, but also big opportunity. Now for yes. Chrysler, th they they have no obligation to help out these nations within their bounds. They they're doing it to be to be helpful to be good neighbors. Help them solve their problems, which I think is extremely important. But go ahead. Learn you of a measure on the ballot coming up in November two I believe it's to pass recreational marijuana where do you guys stand on that? And how would that impact your efforts? Do you think? Well, it'll be interesting. We just an on November sixteen belt the state past medical marijuana. On a statewide initiated measure, and we're in the process of implementing that in North Dakota. There's very I'd say a wide open. Rules in terms of how initiated ballot initiative measures can get on the ballot and the language. So this will there may be an opportunity for diverting people out of the criminal Justice system, which we're working entrepreneur recovery because we know that we can't arrest or incarcerate Arte by a health problem. An addiction problem we can't do that at the same time this particular ballot initiative is certainly lacking in terms of the number of of elements that would allow to commonsense controls around around rounded being wide open. And then we have another challenge we've got a border. That's a close to three hundred sixty miles long with Canada and Canada's going full legalization on October seventeenth an adult create some other interesting challenges. And of course, we're a pathway between east.
