BISMARCK – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Subcommittee on Fisheries, Water, and Wildlife, delivered remarks at the annual meeting of the North Dakota Farm Bureau (NDFB) today.

“It is always a pleasure to hear from North Dakota’s agricultural producers, give them an update on the work we’re doing in Congress, and thank them for feeding and fueling the world,” said Senator Cramer.  

Senator Cramer supports several pieces of legislation which would assist North Dakota’s farmers and ranchers, including the “PRIME Act,” the “Cover Crop Flexibility Act,” and the “New Markets for State Inspected Meat and Poultry Act.”

He is also a leading voice in Congress for protecting the private property rights of landowners. Last month, Senator Cramer introduced legislation to reform the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service. Additionally, the senator has worked closely with the Trump Administration on holding the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) accountable over the issue of Waterfowl Production Area (WPA) easements.
