    LANDGRAF: Making history in Odessa

    July 29th was a great day for Odessa and the Permian Basin. I appreciate the President for being here to highlight our dominance in the energy industry. In a surprise, one of the purposes of the trip was for the President to show support for the oilpatch by taking action to promote our energy independence by signing four critical permits for vital pipeline and railway infrastructure on our border. Also, seeing all the video of Air Force One descending over pumpjacks has been very neat!
