Quote of the day

“As co-chair of the Senate Finance Committee, I know that if we don’t get more oil production soon, the state won’t be able to fund as many projects as this one and we won’t have as many jobs for our graduates. Nothing would disappoint me and everyone in this audience more than to have our engineering students have to go to North Dakota, Texas, Canada or wherever to get a job.”
