DAKOTA DUNES, SD – On Monday, Governor Pete Ricketts participated in the 16th Tri-State Governors’ Conference, which was hosted in Dakota Dunes, South Dakota.  The Tri-State Governors’ Conference is a biennial event where the governors from Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota come together to discuss the important issues facing the Tri-State area.

 

The conference began with a luncheon where all three governors delivered a brief State of the State address for their respective states.  Next, the governors participated in a forum where speakers from the region delivered presentations on economic development, workforce initiatives, and biofuels.  After the presentations, each governor provided responses to the issues raised.
