FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Rep. Rick Berg says the North Dakota attitude is that all energy production is good energy production, and that approach should be taken in Washington.

The North Dakota Republican gave the opening remarks Saturday morning at a House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform field hearing in Fargo.

Berg says that rather than picking winners and losers in energy production, North Dakota creates a stable, business-friendly climate by encouraging an all-of-the-above approach to energy.

The hearing looked at the economic growth and job creating potential of the Bakken formation and its contribution toward domestic energy.

Several state officials and energy company gave testimony spoke at the hearing.
