Congressman Frank Lucas Votes No on Infrastructure Bill- Calling it an Imperfect Bill

Sun, 07 Nov 2021 13:14:07 CST

Congressman Frank Lucas Votes No on Infrastructure Bill- Calling it an Imperfect Bill The House passed a $550 billion infrastructure bill on Friday night, 228-206, sending the measure to President Joe Biden's desk after months of limbo.

The legislation, stalled in the House since its August Senate passage amid Democratic infighting, stemmed from bipartisan upper-chamber negotiations on roads, rails and broadband, among other priorities. Only 13 House Republicans voted for the bill, alongside all but 6 Democrats.

One of the Republicans voting no was Oklahoma Congressman Frank Lucas. Congressman Lucas 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.”
