           MEASURES READ THE FIRST TIME--H.R. 3 AND H.R. 271

  Mr. REID. Mr. President, I am told there are two bills at the desk. 
If that is the case, I ask for their first reading.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. The clerk will read the bills by title for the 
first time.
  The assistant legislative clerk read as follows:

       A bill (H.R. 3) to approve the construction, operation, and 
     maintenance of the Keystone XL Pipeline, and for other 
     purposes.
       A bill (H.R. 271) to clarify that compliance with an 
     emergency order under section 202(c) of the Federal Power Act 
     may not be considered a violation of any Federal, State, or 
     local environmental law or regulation, and for other 
     purposes.

  Mr. REID. I now ask for a second reading and object to my own 
request, all en bloc.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Objection having been heard, the bills will be 
read for the second time on the next legislative day.

                          ____________________
