Jack Dalrymple on Environment

 


Follow Clean Air Act at EPA, but leave air control to ND

EPA should drop its plan to take over the state's authority to regulate air quality.

The EPA should abide by the CAA which allows the state to regulate its own industries. The state has a long and proven history of operating its Clean Air Permit program, but the EPA now proposes requiring the state's coal plants & other industries to install equipment that is not proven to work and is extremely expensive. The mandate would ultimately drive up consumers' energy costs and harm the state's economy.

Water should be available for no cost; drop storage fee plan

I oppose the Corps' water fee plan. The US Army Corps of Engineers is considering plans to charge businesses, farmers and other water users a "storage fee" based on the amount of water they draw from Lake Sakakawea.

We have a legal right to that water, using its easements to block ND's access to its own rightful water supplies is an attempt to achieve monetary gain where none is justified. The Missouri River is valuable to the state and is a resource that should be available to access without cost.

Keystone XL Pipeline fundamental to economic prosperity.

Dalrymple signed Letter from Governors in US and Canada to Pres. Obama

Dear Mr. President,

We respectfully urge you to move forward on the Keystone XL Pipeline project. The energy relationship between the US and Canada is vital to the future of both our countries.

We consider the Keystone XL Pipeline fundamentally important to the future economic prosperity of both the US and Canada.
