Rural Oklahoma advocacy Organization applauds the Passage of the Bi-partisan Infrastructure Bill passed by US Senate.Fri, 13 Aug 2021 11:50:12 CDT
The bi-partisan infrastructure agreement that was passed earlier this week by Democrat and Republican members of the United States Senate represents a desperately needed investment in Rural America according to Clay Pope, Chairman of the Oklahoma Rural and Small-Town Table of Common Interests.
“It is disappointing that both Oklahoma Senators James Lankford and Jim Inhofe did not join 19 other Republican Senators in voting for the biggest bi-partisan investment in infrastructure that we have had in decades”, Pope said.
We are hopeful that the House of Representatives will take up and pass the bipartisan infrastructure agreement that would send a desperately needed $4.3 billion for Oklahoma highway funds, $266 million for Oklahoma bridge replacements, $354 million for Oklahoma public transportation, and $100 million for statewide broadband access.
