WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) joined Stuart Varney on Fox Business this morning to discuss the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.
On the Dakota Access Pipeline:
“For the last three years the Dakota Access Pipeline has been successfully, safely, and with a very clean environmental footprint moving over half a million barrels of North Dakota crude to market for three years. [The Biden Administration] would have a hard time reversing that one. It would have tremendous economic, as well as natural resource and national security, ramifications.”
On the Importance of Energy Security:
“The energy independence Donald Trump achieved, the energy dominance we achieved, has tremendous ramifications, but remember it is not just the actual jobs that the industry itself creates, which are in the millions. It's the entire supply chain of everything we grow, produce, manufacture. It is national security because we're no longer dependent on other countries. All of that goes away if you shut down something like the Dakota Access Pipeline.”
