Mr. RODNEY DAVIS of Illinois. Thank you to the gentleman from California for yielding.

Many of my colleagues are correct. We do need a permitting process, but this bill is what needs to happen when the permit process breaks down. Keystone is going to create the tens of thousands of jobs that many of us in this Chamber go back to our home districts and talk about being created; but a piece of paper, with the lack of signature, is holding this up. Just this past week, our President stood and said he wanted to make sure that we shortened the time that permits like this take, that we shorten the process so that America can begin to put our trades and labor folks back to work again.

This, Mr. President, is your time in history in which you can sign this permit, create tens of thousands of jobs, and really prove to us that you're serious about reining in this regulatory process.
