    EMMER. I thank the gentleman from Pennsylvania.

    Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of the Keystone pipeline, which will safely move 300 million barrels annually, strengthen our economy, continue to decrease our dependence on Mideast oil, and support thousands of jobs.

    This body has shown tremendous leadership on this issue and last year passed bipartisan legislation to approve Keystone for the ninth time. Today, with strong support from unions, businesses, and the American people, we must pass it again.

    I am grateful for Representative Cramer, Chairman Shuster, Chairman Upton, and the leadership for their work on this vital legislation.
