Hoeven Joins Senator Cramer, Outlines ND Priorities to EPA Administrator

BISMARCK, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Energy and Agriculture Committees, today joined Senator Kevin Cramer and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan for a stakeholder listening session in Bismarck. During the meeting, Hoeven made the case for the EPA to support the state’s priorities, including: 

  • Cracking the code on carbon capture and sequestration (CCUS) technology to produce more energy with improved environmental stewardship.
  • Ensuring regulatory certainty, and a commonsense, state-led approach to regulation, rather than reviving unworkable, one-size-fits-all regulations from the past like the Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule.

“We appreciate the opportunity to join Senator Cramer in showing Administrator Regan firsthand the good work being done in North Dakota,” said Hoeven. “We outlined to the administrator how North Dakota is leading the way in preserving clean air and water, while also supporting economic growth, including our efforts to crack the code on CCUS and produce more energy with better environmental stewardship. We need a commonsense, state-led approach to regulations and we made that case to Administrator Regan today.”
