“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.

Congratulations to my close friend, Dr. Tom Price, on becoming our nation’s next Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). As a thought-leader on solving the turmoil brought on by Obamacare, Tom is equipped to hit the ground running his first day in office. As a medical physician, Tom has committed his entire life to protecting the most vulnerable among us and championing what’s best for patients. As the head of HHS, he will serve as a great ally to Congress as we work to give Americans more control and more choices in their health coverage. Through Tom, North Dakotans will never have to worry about being turned away for care or having access to health coverage taken away – including those with pre-existing conditions.
