              IT'S TIME TO BUILD THE KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE

  (Mr. WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to 
address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, for over 1,700 days, the 
administration has delayed the Keystone XL pipeline application. 
According to a recent Pew Research poll, two-thirds of the American 
people from both political parties support the project. Last night, 
there was a bipartisan vote to promote the pipeline from Canada, 
America's best energy partner. The completion of the Keystone XL 
pipeline will create 120,000 jobs and produce 830,000 barrels of oil 
each day, helping to grow our economy.
  Two years ago, I had the opportunity to visit Fort McMurray, Alberta, 
Canada, and I witnessed firsthand the Canadian oil sands and positive 
impact that exploration has for American families. In South Carolina's 
Second Congressional District, companies like Michelin Tire Corporation 
of Lexington and MTU Detroit Diesel of Aiken County will create jobs 
due to Keystone's production.
  As the American people and a bipartisan Congress support it, let's 
create jobs and build the Keystone pipeline.
  In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget 
September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.
  Our sympathy goes to our British allies in this war who were cowardly 
attacked at the Royal Artillery Barracks in London yesterday.
