VIDEO: Drill Permit Streamlining Bill Sponsored by Rep. Cramer Passes House


WASHINGTON, D.C., May 16, 2013 - In North Dakota, it can take 10 times as long to get a drilling permit on federal lands compared to state lands. That is why the House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to pass H.R. 767, a bill sponsored by Committee member Congressman Cramer, which streamlines the federal permitting process in North Dakota to reduce delays in obtaining a permit to drill on federal lands. 

Check out what Rep. Cramer has to say in this news video highlighting his bill below.
