Cramer Requests Congressional Hearing

Posted: Updated:

Representative Kevin Cramer seeks a congressional hearing on the Department of the Interior's proposed Resource Management Plans and priority habitat for the Greater Sage Grouse. He says the plans could have an impact on North Dakota's economy and habitat.

Cramer, along with Representative Steve Daines (MT-AL), wants the Natural Resources Committee to examine the potential impacts of actions and listings under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). In a letter to Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings, they requested a field hearing to be held in Montana or North Dakota in the coming weeks.

The letter also points to the nationwide implications of ESA abuse, noting potential federal actions under the ESA could have severe repercussions on domestic energy production. Additionally, misguided federal actions could impact livestock and outdoor recreation industries, both of which are critical to the economy and way of life in North Dakota and Montana.
