Armstrong Statement on Democrats’ Reckless Tax and Spend Spree

Americans cannot afford the Democrats’ spending spree. This reckless $3.5 trillion budget resolution will bring the highest federal spending levels in American history, add $17 trillion to the national debt, further drive-up inflation, and raise taxes on American workers by at least $1.8 trillion. North Dakotans and Americans expect real, bipartisan solutions, not more unchecked, massive, partisan spending from Washington.

WASHINGTON – Congressman Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) released the following statement on the Democrats’ passage of their $3.5 trillion budget resolution. This partisan bill calls for the highest sustained federal spending levels in American history and proposes $68 trillion in total spending over 10 ...

The brave men and women who have fought on behalf of our country in the Global War on Terrorism deserve to be honored.

Armstrong Supports the ENTRÉE Act to Aid America's Struggling Restaurants

American restaurant owners have worked hard to keep their doors open during the pandemic. The ENTRÉE Act will help restaurant owners receive the assistance they need to continue to provide jobs and serve their communities. This commonsense legislation will use unspent allocated dollars rather than continuing to recklessly grow the national deficit.

WASHINGTON – Congressman Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) joined Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) as a cosponsor of the Entrepreneurs Need Timely Replenishment for Eating Establishments (ENTRÉE) Act. Due to overreaching shutdown measures and altered capacity restrictions, restaurants across the countr...

I am proud to join Rep. John Curtis and share the story of how North Dakota is helping to bring food and energy security for America while protecting our environment.

It’s time to think about our energy sources, how we power our technology, and how to secure our grid to protect ourselves against attacks and outages. Conservative Climate Caucus member Congressman Kelly Armstrong recognizes the importance of transitioning to renewables.

The tragic situation in Afghanistan is a failure of leadership by the Biden administration. President Biden made clear his intention to withdraw troops months ago, yet thousands of Americans, our Afghan allies, and military personnel are scrambling to evacuate the country as the Taliban seizes control. The men and women of our armed forces, veterans, and the American people expect and deserve better than this. President Biden must act immediately to defend American citizens and our allies and ensure their quick and safe return home.

Armstrong, Trone Re-Introduce Bipartisan Legislation to Reduce Jail Incarceration

A significant portion of incarcerated individuals in local jails are held in pretrial detention. I am proud to work with Congressman David Trone to make resources available for communities and local governments that empower them to make public safety decisions and reduce jail populations. Our bill will help reduce incarceration rates, lower recidivism, and keep communities safe by implementing commonsense bipartisan criminal justice reforms.

WASHINGTON – Today Congressmen Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) and David Trone (D-MD) announced they will reintroduce the Community First Pretrial Reform and Jail Decarceration Act, which will create a Department of Justice grant program to incentivize local governments and community partners to invest in ...

Reps. Armstrong, Speier, Lofgren and Senators Grassley and Shaheen Introduce Bipartisan Survivors’ Bill of Rights in the States Act

After enduring horrific situations, sexual assault victims often experience new traumas while navigating the criminal justice system. Today, I helped introduce the Survivors’ Bill of Rights in the States Act, which incentivizes states to guarantee that forensic evidence is preserved, victims are informed of forensic testing results, and are notified in writing if forensic evidence is scheduled to be destroyed. The collection and preservation of forensic evidence is key to bringing justice for victims, and I am honored to help advance this bipartisan legislation.

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) joined Congresswomen Jackie Speier (D-CA) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) to introduce the bipartisan, bicameral Survivors’ Bill of Rights in the States Act. In 2016, Congress unanimously p...

My story

I’m a lifelong, devoted North Dakotan and a tireless advocate for making North Dakota a better place to live and work.

I’m an avid outdoorsman, a big fan of baseball and a frequent volunteer in my community. Fortunately, I’ve found ways to combine all three in coaching boys’ baseball and girls’ softball, volunteer firefighting and leading the Dickinson Baseball club.

I was elected to represent North Dakota in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018 and took the oath of office on January 3, 2019. Before that, I served in the North Dakota State Senate for District 36 and as chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party.

In Congress, I’m working to protect the livelihood of farmers and ranchers, unleash North Dakota’s full energy potential and ensure North Dakota’s voice is heard.
