Congressman Kevin Cramer

Representing North Dakota, At Large

Energy

Reducing our Middle East energy dependence is a major step toward increasing our national security. With this in mind, making the United States energy secure from other nations is one of my highest priorities as your Congressman. North Dakota is blessed with the resources to lead the charge toward energy security, and I am proud of the hard work done by our oil producers in North Dakota each day to make this goal possible. I remain firmly committed to advancing this goal on a national level as a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

“I am pleased Mr. Pruitt was finally confirmed as our next EPA Administrator. With his healthy skepticism of agency power, Administrator Pruitt will return environmental protection to the states where it rightfully belongs. For North Dakota’s ag and energy economy, Pruitt will be one of the most significant appointments by the Trump Administration. I look forward to the EPA rolling back their Waters of the U.S. rule as well as other harmful regulations such as the Clean Power Plan, and other greenhouse gas emission rules,” said Cramer.
