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.

Mar 10, 2017 Press Release
Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement today urging pro-energy senators to support the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn the Obama Adminstration‘s Bureau of Land Manangement (BLM) methane rule. “This God-awful rule is aimed right at North Dakota in an effort to destroy the Bakken. The rule does nothing to help the environment, plus states and the EPA already have authority over flaring and venting. If the Senate passes this CRA, the rule can never come up again. But if the White House has to deal with it, this rule is destined to come back the next time we have a liberal president. That’s why I contacted Senator McConnell today and urged him to bring it up for a vote as soon as possible. I’m confident, even undecided, energy senators will find their way to the right side of the issue”
