him to do and it's time the state did something for this guy.

SENATOR  MICCICHE recommended  reviewing  the fact  sheet on  Mr.                                                               
Fauske as he had done many things for the state.                                                                                
SENATOR  KELLY  said   that  Dan  Fauske  had   been  a  "utility

and done  it well. He was  one of the most  reliable and informed                                                               
people the state  has had working for it. He  has worked for both                                                               
Republican and  Democrat administrations;  it doesn't  bother him                                                               
which one.  He always just  gives you  the truth, and  that's why                                                               
they  throw him  the  ball  constantly. He'll  be  proud to  vote                                                               
tomorrow to name  this building after Mr. Fauske  and wished they

SENATOR  GARDNER remembered  during  one of  the gasline  debates                                                               
that someone said Dan Fauske is the best employee the state has.
