Democrats Respond To State Of The State Address

Posted:

After Governor Jack Dalrymple's state of the state address to North Dakota, democrats weighed in on what needs to be done this legislative session.

Senate Minority Leader, Mac Schneider says now that the state of the state is behind them, the session is facing them.

He says it's important to recognize the accomplishments in the state, but there's also a lot of work to be done.

"The time for high fives is really over, we have immediate needs that need to be addressed this session and also incredible opportunities facing us that we need to capitalize on so we can plan for life after the oil boom is gone," Senate Minority Leader Mac Schneider said.

House Minority Leader --- Kenton Onstad says there's a lot of excitement right now in the state of North Dakota, but this session policy makers need to put their decisions together and come up with solutions.

"It's exciting, but I want to remind everyone that it's the policy makers now who have to take this vision, we have to put those competing ideas on the table and then we can come up with a good compromise, if everyone is willing to compromise and that's why I'm looking forward to the session," House Minority Leader, Kenton Onstad said.

Onstad says the two reasons why families aren't able to move to North Dakota, are housing and daycare.
