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 two important energy subcommittees, and the Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulations. I am also pleased to be chosen by the House Majority Leader to serve on the newly formed House Energy Action Team (HEAT).
