Honoring our Fallen
I attended the Sherwood Memorial Day Service to honor our service members who made the ultimate price in defending our freedom. We must never forget their sacrifice.
Senate Armed Services Passes a Pro-North Dakota NDAA
The Senate Armed Services Committee passed this year’s National Defense Authorization Act out of committee with strong bipartisan support. In bolstering our nuclear triad, improving the lives of our service members, and paving the way for a modernized, adequately-equipped Space Force, this legislation reflects the priorities of North Dakota and addresses the needs of our military community.
North Dakota’s military community is a source of a pride to our state. This legislation supports those in North Dakota who defend our nation at home and around the globe through deterrents, covert missions, and with cutting edge technology that represents the future of military combat. A few of North Dakota's priorities that were included are listed below.
Combatting Excessive Bureaucracy
I met with leaders of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers this week.
We discussed recent updates on border wall construction, permanent flooding relief for Fargo and Minot, North Dakota’s claim filed under the Federal Tort Claims Act regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, and Select Energy Services’ application for increased volumes of water for fracking.
The federal government has become an overblown bureaucracy, and the priorities of states like North Dakota often fall victim to its slow and arduous procedures. I pressed the Army Corps to streamline their processes to ensure they no longer inhibit projects from being completed, the southern border from being secured, or our energy needs from being met. I further committed to using my position in the United States Senate to continue combatting this excessive bureaucracy.
Air Force Secretary Nominee
President Donald Trump announced he will nominate Barbara Barrett as the next U.S. Secretary of the Air Force.
I am pleased to see President Trump nominate a well-qualified candidate to this important post. North Dakota’s Air Force bases are a foundational part of our state, and they play a pivotal role in the defense of our country. I look forward to meeting to discuss my priorities and to hear about her vision for leading this branch of our military.
