Allred Statement on the Two-Year Anniversary of the Signing of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

Dallas, TX — Today, Congressman Colin Allred released the following statement on the two-year anniversary of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law being signed into law: 

“As a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I was proud to help lead the passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to invest in our infrastructure, make it easier for folks to get around and for businesses to get their products to customers, and to save Texans money all while creating good paying jobs. Two years later, I’m proud that this legislation is delivering for our state. 

“From improving our airports and ports; strengthening our electric grid; expanding high-speed internet; fixing our roads and bridges; funding public transportation; to helping create an electric vehicle charging network across Texas, this legislation is making things better for Texans and lowering costs. We can still do big things when we work together and this bill is an example of that. By voting against this bill and its tens of billions of dollars in investments for Texas infrastructure, Ted Cruz put cynical partisan politics over doing what’s best for our state.”

Of the $35 billion that will continue to come to Texas over the coming years, here are some highlights of investments already allocated, announced, or in action: 

  • $1.2 billion for a clean Hydrogen Hub to come to Houston, one of just seven across the country
  • $10.7 billion for Texas roads, bridges, roadway safety, and major projects
  • $100 million to expand broadband internet access
  • $1 billion to improve water infrastructure and replace lead pipes
  • $3.4 billion for public transportation
  • $128.5 million for cleaner and improved buses
  • $408 million to expand Texas’ EV charging network
  • $310.2 million for clean energy, energy efficiency, and power
  • $669.9 million for Texas airports in 2022-23 alone
  • $344.7 million in 2022-23 alone to improve Texas ports and waterways
