April 3, 2017

Dear Friends:

Earlier this month, the Trump Administration approved the permit to build the Keystone XL Pipeline. We welcome this long-delayed approval because this project is not only about energy, but also job creation, economic growth and making America more secure by reducing our dependence on Middle Eastern oil. 

Building infrastructure is a clear signal that our nation is once again open for business, and it will help us grow our economy. We also continue working to establish a pro-growth business environment that spurs new private-sector investment, which means reducing the regulatory burden and passing tax reform. I outlined priorities that will help our state in The Bismarck Tribune’s Vision ’17 special section.

In our effort to focus on the fundamentals, we are working to undo onerous and duplicative regulations. I was glad to join the President and the Interior Secretary as they respectively signed orders to roll back unnecessary regulations and help grow our energy industry and our economy.

Please read below about other developments this month, including the Senate Agriculture Committee’s approval of the nomination of Sonny Perdue to be U.S. Secretary of Agriculture and our work to secure permanent flood protection for the Red River Valley. 

Sincerely,

U.S. Senator John Hoeven
