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

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