Hoeven, Heitkamp, Cramer Press Administration to Review Public Road and Access Issues in National Grasslands
WASHINGTON - Senators John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp and Congressman Kevin Cramer today requested that U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions review and resolve public road and access issues in and around the Little Missouri, Sheyenne and Cedar River National Grasslands.
“We respectfully ask that the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Justice Department review and reconsider the critically important public road and access issues currently involved in litigation with the state,” said the delegation. “These issues are vital to the livelihoods of rural citizens and businesses in the counties in and near the Little Missouri, Sheyenne and Cedar River National Grasslands.”
The delegation requested that the Administration work with the state of North Dakota and adversely affected counties to find a mutually acceptable settlement to resolve the access issues, which are currently in litigation.
The Little Missouri National Grassland includes major portions of four counties in western North Dakota and the Sheyenne and Cedar River National Grasslands include portions of four additional North Dakota counties.
