Energy development

In January 2014, Streyle questioned the statutory authority of the North Dakota State Industrial Commission to create “special places” exceptions for oil development and advocated for the commission to bring its proposals for a vote to the state legislature.[2] The “special places” exceptions include a proposed list of North Dakota locations in which energy development would face stricter regulatory scrutiny, although Streyle disagreed with the legal authority of such exceptions. “I don’t see it in code,” Streyle said in an interview. He also expressed skepticism about the additional regulatory scrutiny. “We’ve got plenty of regulations,” he said. “Why do we need to add these sites?” Streyle was joined in his skepticism about the law by Agriculture Commission Doug Goehring and State Senator Kelly Armstrong.[2]

Campaign themes


Streyle's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[3]

Limited Government

  • Excerpt: "Government should provide only the functions that cannot be done by individuals or private businesses. The best form of government is one that governs the least."

Lower Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Reducing taxes is critical to continued economic success and we must look to cut all forms of taxes to as low as possible, but still providing essential services only government can provide.Tax cuts for all is a priority of mine."

Balanced Budgets

  • Excerpt: "Maintaining balanced budgets and saving for the future is critical to North Dakota’s long-term success. I’m a strong fiscal conservative!"

Free & Open Markets

  • Excerpt: "The only way to insure long-term steady growth in an economy is to open all markets around the world and bring down trade barriers. North Dakota’s products should be sold all over the world. The free markets system is the only proven system that works for all. Small businesses create most of the job in the country and we must support and make business friendly in North Dakota."

Reducing Regulations

  • Excerpt: "Governments job isn’t to saddle businesses with excessive regulations and rules. We must work to stay one of the BEST places to do business in the world. I will work to cut the red tape and reduce cumbersome regulations that hurt job growth."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of North Dakota scorecards, email suggestions to

The North Dakota Policy Council, a North Dakota-based nonprofit research organization which describes itself as "liberty-based", published the North Dakota Legislative Review, a comprehensive report on how state legislators voted during the 2011 legislative session. The scorecard seeks to show how North Dakota legislators voted on the principles the Council seeks to promote. The Council recorded and scored votes on both spending bills and policy bills, and awarded points accordingly. Policy issues voted upon included income tax cuts, pension reform, and government transparency. On spending legislation, the Council accorded a percentage score based on how much spending the legislator voted against. On policy legislation, scores range from the highest score (100%) to the lowest (0%). A higher score indicates that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Council.[11] Streyle received a score of 83.13% on policy legislation and voted against 15.58% of state spending. Streyle was ranked 8th on policy and 12th on spending, out of 94 House members evaluated for the study.[12]


Streyle and his wife, Kristi, have two children. They currently reside in Minot, North Dakota.[1]
