Cramer ranking chair of EPW Transportation & Infrastructure Subcommittee
WASHINGTON – Sen. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., announced on Tuesday he will serve as the ranking member on the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Subcommittee on Transportation and Infrastructure during the 117th Congress.
“It is past time Congress stopped viewing infrastructure as a talking point and started treating it as the national priority it is,” said Cramer. “I look forward to working with Chairman Cardin and my colleagues in both parties to use this subcommittee as an avenue to craft a bipartisan infrastructure package that sets partisan theatrics aside and delivers a significant, unifying win for the American people.”
The Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee has jurisdiction over issues involving U.S. Army Corps of Engineers water projects and management, regional economic development, as well as highway programs.
He will also serve on the Fisheries, Water, and Wildlife Subcommittee – which he chaired last Congress – and the Air Subcommittee, giving him congressional oversight over several federal agencies North Dakotans routinely deal with, including the Fish and Wildlife Service and the Environmental Protection Agency.
