Dear Friends:

The 114th Congress began in January and the Senate is already off to a busy start! We have already had more amendment roll call votes than in all of 2014. This is an important first step toward returning to regular order in the Senate, and will help us pass bipartisan legislation to get our country back on track. A prime example is my Keystone XL Pipeline bill, which the Senate passed after weeks of debate by a vote of 62-36. You can read more about this important bill below.

We were also successful in getting FEMA to approve Fargo’s basement exception application, which means city residents can continue to protect their belongings through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) without having to fulfill any additional requirements. In December, our delegation wrote a letter in support of Fargo’s application because the city has successfully implemented the basement exception in the NFIP for close to 40 years.

Fargo also celebrated the NDSU Bison, who won their 4th consecutive national championship. Mikey and I were thrilled to witness the historic win, and we could not be more proud of the players, Coach Klieman and all of the fans who cheered the Bison to victory.  I authored and worked to pass a Senate resolution recognizing the Bison's achievement.
