WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND), a member of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, issued the following statement on Democrats reintroducing the Green New Deal today:

“The Green New Deal is not a serious proposal, it’s a pipe dream. It would ruin the economy, bankrupt the nation, and destroy America’s energy and national security. And while the Green New Deal would wreak all this havoc, it would still fail to lower emissions because demand would simply shift to dirtier, foreign sources of energy. I urge my colleagues to reject the Green New Deal as they did last Congress and join us at the table with real, consensus-driven solutions.”
