Boyd Madam Chair, thank– and committee members, thank you for indulging me to hear House resolution1036.

And we are sending millions of dollars overseas to people in a way that potentially threatens our– does threaten our national security. And I just think it’s time that we restart, you know, the– resume, the Keystone XL pipeline. And that said, I’d be happy to try to answer any questions.
