Mr. Davis. Governor, we are honored to have you with us this after100n. We will be glad to hear your statement.

Governor BRUNSDALE. Thanks a lot. I realize that when I do get down here they make good use out of me, as much as they can, and make me earn my pay, I guess.

Mr. Davis. Well, it is a long way to come. That is why they put you to work when you do get here.

We will be very happy to have any statement you would like to make, Mr. Krueger, and then we will be glad to hear any statement the Governor may wish to make relative to some projects in the State of North Dakota.

Mr. KRUEGER. Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of the committee, first I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the arrangement of this hearing. It so happened that the Governor of our State was coming down here, and I spoke to you and you gave us this time. It will save his time and save an extra trip down, and that is appreciated.

The statements that are going to be made are by a delegation from North Dakota who can speak for themselves and present their problems to you much better than I can.

First I would like you to hear Governor Brunsdale.

Mr. Davis. Thank you. Of course, your membership on the Appropriations Committee makes us feel happy that we are able to accommodate you and to accommodate the Governor and the delegation from your State.

Mr. Hand. The committee has been made keenly aware of your interest in these North Dakota problems.

Governor BRUNSDALE. Mr. Chairman, before proceeding with my statement, I do want to express my gratitude to the chairman and members of this committee for hearing us out of order today. It is a valuable accommodation to us and we do appreciate your courtesy.
