“Access to high quality, affordable broadband technology continues to transform the economy of rural America,” said Rep. Cramer. “I look forward to working with my colleagues and stakeholders to continue to foster its growth, for the benefit of North Dakota and the entire nation
I never cease to be amazed and inspired by the hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists who come to Washington every year on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision to fight for the most vulnerable of our citizens who are unable to fight for themselves. I’m especially honored by the fact that 500 North Dakotans once again made the trip.
“Protecting the American people from the Islamic state and radical Islamic terrorism is not a partisan issue. The House passed the SAFE Act in November with a bi-partisan veto proof majority,” said Cramer. “The recent attacks in San Bernardino show our country is vulnerable to terrorist attacks and the Senate Democrats decision to filibuster this bill threatens the safety of every American.”
“WOTUS remains an unconstitutional power grab by the federal government, harmful to small businesses, landowners and ag producers in North Dakota and across the country. This administration’s brazen overregulation and attempt to have jurisdiction over every puddle on every farm in every state harms the American economy and costs jobs. I will continue to work with my colleagues to kill this rule once and for all while supporting the states’ efforts to litigate this matter.”
“These proposed rules are an attempt by this administration to shut down the industry as they pursue their War on Coal. There are North Dakota lease applications under review by the Bureau of Land Management and as a result of today’s announced pause of the leasing program they may not be approved. With approximately 15 percent of the coal in North Dakota classified as federal, making the federal coal program more restrictive will be very expensive and lead to job loss in coal country. To mine around federal coal is very expensive and could ultimately make a mine economically unfeasible.”
