    FOXX asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Ms. FOXX. Mr. Speaker, too often good ideas get lost in bureaucratic red tape. Today we have the opportunity to start cutting that tape away.

    H.R. 161, the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act, requires a timely decision to be made on liquefied natural gas projects around the country, projects that have been held back by unnecessary regulations.

    This bill streamlines the review process, getting these projects off of paper and in place, and once these projects start, countless economic opportunities will begin as well.

    More jobs, decreased dependency on foreign oil, and a modernized energy sector are waiting. All we need to do is cut the tape and let these opportunities flourish.

    This is a commonsense economic step towards a healthier economy. I am proud to support H.R. 161 and the energizing opportunities that come with its passage.
