BISMARCK – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Subcommittee on Fisheries, Water, and Wildlife, issued the following statement on the Senate unanimously passing the bipartisan America’s Conservation Enhancement (ACE) Act this week: 

“The ACE Act would help North Dakota preserve our wildlife and protect our livestock. I urge the House to take up this common sense, bipartisan bill and send it to President Trump.”

The ACE Act aims to help conserve wildlife and wildlife habitats, address the threats of emerging wildlife diseases, protect livestock from predators, and combat invasive species.

Senator Cramer cosponsored this bipartisan legislation - which went through his EPW subcommittee - with Senators Ben Cardin (D-MD), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), and Jim Inhofe (R-OK). It was introduced by EPW’s Chairman and Ranking Member, Senator John Barrasso (W-WY) and Tom Carper (D-DE), and unanimously passed through EPW in December.

It now goes to the House of Representatives.
