Washington, DC – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives voted to adopt H.R. 3684- the Senate Infrastructure bill:

“While Congress has worked over the years to advance the modernization and the efficiency of our infrastructure, this is an imperfect bill. As important as infrastructure is to connecting our communities and economies to one another, unfortunately, this unvetted bill remained politically coupled with the Majority’s partisan trillion-plus dollar spending and tax bill,” said Congressman Lucas. “I’m hopeful Congress can come together through the appropriate committee process to pass a truly bipartisan, bicameral bill, ensuring infrastructure investment reaches every corner and community of America.”
