WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer congratulated Paul Lindseth, Dean of University of North Dakota’s John D. Odegaard School of Aerospace Sciences, on his appointment to the newly formed U.S. Department of Transportation’s Working Group on Improving Air Service to Small Communities. “Rural residents depend on airports in communities across North Dakota to ensure they have access to air travel connecting them to larger markets,“ said Cramer. “Paul understands this well, especially as it relates to having well-trained pilots meeting those needs. His extensive experience as an instructor and Air Force pilot makes him a great choice to advocate for our state. I look forward to working with Paul in his new role.“ Lindseth will join 24 other members from small communities involved in aviation across the United States to advise Congress on priorities, issues and funding needs in rural areas.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) releasing its Clean Power Plan Model Rule working drafts, viewable here. “The release of these working drafts is nothing more than manipulation disguised as transparency. It’s clearly a nudge by the EPA to the states to try and get them to adopt a cap-and-trade program that the Congress of the United States has already rejected. The incoming President has also made it very clear there will be no cap-and-trade policy forthcoming. What this really reminds us is that it’s time to end the illegal power grabs, and a reminder that we need to not rest – but to double down on our diligence as pro-growth, pro-job Republicans to ensure future environmental policy is guided by regular order, not executive fiat.”

Congressmen Kevin Cramer issued this statement following today’s pre-publication by the Department of the Interior Office of Surface Mining (OSM) of the Stream Protection Rule.

Since the beginning of his first term, President Obama’s Department of the Interior has spent millions of taxpayer dollars to rewrite an already modern 2008 rule. This rule infringes on a state’s ability to manage their own successful coal reclamation programs. In fact, just two weeks ago the OSM reported that ‘North Dakota has an effective program with no issues.’ It’s well documented that states which actually implement these rules on the ground have been pushed aside by OSM. I encourage them to continue fighting this rule and I will work with my colleagues in Congress and President-elect Trump to prevent this rule through the Congressional Review Act.”

“I am pleased this legislation is now law, despite President Obama’s true allegiance. Near unanimous votes by the House and Senate weren’t convincing enough for the President to back the obvious will of the majority of Americans. His refusal to sign this bill sends a clear message that he is unwilling to stand up to our enemies -- just like those Senate Democrats who refused to support the House in blocking the Iran Deal in the first place. This is just one more reason why I look forward to the foreign policy of the incoming Trump Administration, which I know will give more support to our allies than our enemies.”
