Congressman Kevin Cramer announced President Donald Trump signed executive orders this morning addressing two crucial energy infrastructure projects that had been obstructed by the Obama Administration – the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Keystone XL Pipeline. One order directs all federal agencies, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to expedite approval of the easement to complete construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline project. Another order invites the Trans Canada Corporation to resubmit its application for the Keystone XL Pipeline and directs the State Department to expedite its review. “Today’s executive orders affirm President Trump’s respect for the rule of law and his support for responsible infrastructure development, energy production and job creation,” said Cramer.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Kevin Cramer said the budget resolution passed by the House of Representatives today paves the way for Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare. The House approved S. Con. Res. 3, the Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for Fiscal Year 2017, which was passed by the Senate Thursday. The approval of this resolution by both chambers of Congress now triggers the reconciliation process, a fast-track legislative procedure that is filibuster-proof and only requires a simple majority vote for passage in the Senate. The reconciliation bill instructs four authorizing committees in Congress – Ways and Means, and Energy and Commerce in the House, and Finance and Health, and Education, Labor and Pensions in the Senate – to report legislation to their respective budget committees by Jan. 27. This legislation will be combined for consideration by the House and Senate.
