BISMARCK – U.S. Senator and Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee member Kevin Cramer (R-ND) issued the following statement on Senator Elizabeth Warren’s environmental justice plan:

“This plan is a sham. It’s built on Democrats’ Green New Deal legislation which costs $93 trillion and no Senator voted for, including Warren. Complying with the National Environmental Policy Act is already cumbersome for infrastructure and development projects. Expanding it while increasing federal spending by $1 trillion would drive up the debt, crash the economy, and expand an already oversized bureaucracy. If Democrats want to start getting serious about clean development, they should come to the table and work with Republicans to offer real solutions.”
