BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ U.S. Rep.-elect Kevin Cramer says he has been appointed to the House Committee on Natural Resources and the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.
The North Dakota Republican says he's pleased with the assignments because they recognize the role North Dakota plays in areas such as energy development and aerospace research.
Cramer defeated Democrat Pam Gulleson in the November general election to replace Rick Berg in North Dakota's lone U.S. House seat. Berg made an unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate.
Cramer will be sworn into office on Jan. 3.
