Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) released the following statement condemning President Biden’s one-year moratorium on energy leasing on federal lands.

“President Biden's moratorium on oil and gas leases will crush a critical segment of our country’s economy, increase reliance on foreign energy, and weaken our national security. Responsible energy development on our public lands is a major component of North Dakota's economy, and this ban will strike at the livelihoods of the families reliant on the energy sector. The Biden Administration needs to reverse this devastating decision.”
