(Washington, DC) -- Efforts in opposition to raising the debt limit without spending and budget changes are seeing support from North Dakota Senators. 

North Dakota U.S Senators John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer are joining 41 others to voice their opposition to raising the federal government's debt ceiling without spending and budget reforms. The senators say they will not vote for any bill that raises the debt ceiling without the aforementioned reforms. 

“Our economy is in free fall due to unsustainable fiscal policies. This trajectory must be addressed with fiscal reforms. Moreover, recent Treasury projections have reinforced the urgency of addressing the debt ceiling. The House has taken a responsible first step in coming to the table with their proposals. It is imperative that the president now do the same, "said the agreement signed by senators Hoeven, Cramer, and the 41 other lawmakers.
