BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. GENE GREEN of Texas. Mr. Chairman, I support the Keystone pipeline, but I found out this last Monday, and I've asked, and I know the chair of our Energy Committee has heard me ask about a project labor agreement that's for the whole pipeline but it doesn't cover Texas. The largest State along the route does not have a project labor agreement with TransCanada. TransCanada maybe didn't deceive me, but they sure didn't answer the questions when I asked them in our committee. I've talked to them about that. I know our labor support nationwide, they have a project labor agreement from the Canadian border to the Oklahoma border, but not for the biggest part of it, in the State of Texas, and I'm going to work with them because it's important to see that the job be done safely.
