BISMARCK, N.D. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement after Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt announced plans to rewrite the so-called Clean Power Plan Rule:

“President Trump and his Administration have come through for North Dakota, and frankly for energy consumers throughout our country. It has always been clear to North Dakotans that the EPA has overreached its legal authority by going outside the fence line of individual power plants and North Dakota is a good example of arbitrary and capricious emissions standards.”

Cramer also expressed his hope that any rewrite would include consultation with the states and industries at the table.
