Mr. WELCH. I thank the gentlewoman from California, and I thank the gentleman from Texas.

This is terrific. The EB-5 program works. We're doing it together. We're working with the Senate, and we're getting something done. Let me tell you that the place we're getting something done includes the Sugarbush Valley and the Mad River Valley in Vermont, in the Northeast Kingdom, where we've had, among other jobs created, two ski areas that have been able to take advantage of the EB-5 program--to get investor money and to build the infrastructure that is so essential to the tourist economy that we have in Vermont. So this is a program that works, and it is delightful to me to be able to participate in reinstating this program so that it can continue to help create jobs and promote economic development in my State of Vermont.

I thank the gentleman from Texas and the gentlewoman from California for their leadership on this and for the bipartisan team of Senator Leahy and Senator Grassley in the United States Senate.
