Dalrymple to appear on CNBC program

BISMARCK -- Gov Jack Dalrymple will discuss North Dakota's economy on CNBC show "Squawk Box" this this morning.

The governor will participate in a live interview from 7:40 to 8 a.m. CDT, according to his schedule.

Dalrymple spokesman Jeff Zent said North Dakota is in a position not shared by many states.

"They really want to talk to the governor about what we're doing right here: why we have a surplus, why we're able to invest heavily in infrastructure and, at the same time, why we're able to build our reserves," Zent said.

Dalrymple will also emphasize that it's not just oil driving the economy, but also agriculture, technology companies and other businesses, Zent said.

CNBC senior talent producer Lori Ann LaRocco said they decided to include Dalrymple on the show because of the economic track record of the state and the fiscal measures the governor has enacted to grow the state's economy.

Dalrymple will be on with Becky Quick and Joe Kernen to discuss his outlook on North Dakota's economy going forward and how the historic floods have impacted the state, she said.

They will also discuss what headwinds businesses are seeing and how the nation's economy and regulatory landscape is shaping his economic plan, she said.
