  • Dakota Access Site Tour Increases Understanding of Pipeline Controversy

    "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.”

    “Today’s decision prevents the President’s unconstitutional executive order on illegal immigration from being revived. It is another federal court ruling on an Obama Administration effort that is a blatant overreach of executive branch power. I joined 112 Members of Congress in May 2015 supporting an amicus brief in U.S. v. Texas urging a federal court to declare as unlawful President Obama’s executive action in illegal immigration. Today’s decision affirms the rule of law and upholds the authority of Congress to make laws, not the President and Federal agencies.”

    Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement on the Paris climate agreement: “This is exactly the type of circumstance the Founders had in mind when they gave ratification authority to the United States Senate instead of the United Nations or to the European Union. Barack Obama is not the king of the United States. He’s not the king of the world. He’s our President and he works for us. Unilaterally disarming the American economy at the behest of the world is not in his job description.”
  • Cramer, Zinke Introduce Bill to Strengthen Fossil Fuel Industry

    North Dakota Congressman Kevin Cramer and Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke have introduced H.R.6295, the CO2 Regulatory Certainty Act. This bill, which is a companion to Senators John Hoeven (R-ND) and Steve Daines’ (R-MT) S.3459, allows for better use of the Section 45Q carbon sequestration tax credit. The 45Q tax credit is meant to offer incentives for environmentally friendly solutions so power plants can operate cleanly and efficiently. As it stands, tax guidelines and current federal regulations do not align, which makes it impossible for companies to use the tax credit for permanent or geological storage.
