U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) issued the following statement after the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee voted to advance Dan Brouillette’s nomination out of committee and onto the Senate floor:

“Congratulations to Dan, and thank you to my colleagues on the Energy Committee for swiftly moving his nomination. I urged President Trump to nominate Dan because he is a great public servant and a good man who understands the issues the Department of Energy faces. I look forward to working with him once confirmed, and I urge the full Senate to act quickly on his nomination.”
