The bill is important to states like North Dakota that require infrastructure upgrades to take full advantage of the significant energy potential, Conrad said in a statement.

Rural states would have flexibility to use the federal dollars for a variety of purposes, including road construction, rehabilitation, resurfacing and transit projects.

Conrad is joined on the bill by Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo.
