Washington, D.C. –  Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32), a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, today applauded Senate passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan. It passed with strong bipartisan support of 69-30. The bill now heads to the House for final consideration.

“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan will reduce congestion and create jobs by making a once-in-a-generation investment in our roads, bridges, mass transit, broadband and clean energy technology,” said Allred. “Because of our rapid population growth in North Texas Investing in our infrastructure isn’t optional -- it’s a necessity. I look forward to continuing to work in the House to get this bill across the finish line with bipartisan support.” 

Tomorrow, on August 11, Allred will host Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg in Dallas to visit DFW Airport and DART stations as well as meet with local leaders and transportation officials.  

Allred has been a leader in working to pass into law job-creating investments and policies to bolster infrastructure. As a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Allred led the charge on bipartisan legislation to streamline public private partnerships, support the high-speed rail project from Dallas to Houston, strengthen DART, and make the investments needed to support the rapid population growth in North Texas.
