Press Release

WASHINGTON - Congressman Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) joined more than 30 members of the House Energy Action Team (HEAT) to strongly condemn the Biden Administration's 60-day moratorium on issuing oil and gas leases on federal lands and waters.

"Energy production on federal lands in North Dakota supports thousands of jobs and provides millions of dollars for our schools, hospitals, roads, and conservation. This misguided effort will crush a critical segment of our country’s economy, increase reliance on foreign energy, and weaken our national security. I call on the Biden Administration to support responsible energy development on our public lands." - Congressman Armstrong.
