Cramer Criticizes Obama Administration, Praises Law Enforcement in Floor Speech on Dakota Access Pipeline ProtestCongressman Kevin Cramer criticized the Obama Administration for improperly meddling in the Dakota Access Pipeline protest and praised law enforcement for protecting North Dakota citizens in a speech on floor of the House of Representatives Thursday night.
In a letter to President Barack Obama, Senator John Hoeven, Congressman Kevin Cramer and Governor Jack Dalrymple today called on the president to quit delaying and authorize the Army Corps of Engineers to approve the final federal easement for the Lake Oahe crossing of the Dakota Access Pipeline and to immediately provide the State of North Dakota with law enforcement resources to assist state and local enforcement to address violent protesters and keep the peace.
"I believe those of us on all sides of the Dakota Access Pipeline issue benefited from walking together and sharing our expertise, experiences and expectations. I hope this can help us establish a better understanding going forward. And, I am certain that after today the Corps of Engineers will feel confident it has the adequate affirmation to issue the final easement to complete the pipeline construction across the Missouri River at Lake Oahe.”
Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) discusses a #BetterWay to get government out of the way so workers and businesses—and the economy—can flourish. “Our plan is based on the notion that the best way to restore our prosperity is to tap into the talents and aspirations of our people and then get out of their way and let them be successful,” said Rep. Cramer. He continued, “Our plan promotes reliable and affordable American energy, enhancing our global competitiveness. . . . Our plan offers a better path—an inspiring path—so we can have more success stories and more comebacks.”
