Bad Idea: Heidi Heitkamp's Wants To Turn Over Control Of Oil Export Ban To The President

For some stupid reason a forty year old ban on exporting most unrefined crude is still on the books despite generations of politicians paying lip service to the notion of American energy independence (which in and of itself is kind of a stupid talking point, but whatever).
