Oklahoma would get nearly $5 billion from Senate infrastructure bill
Oklahoma would receive at least $4.3 billion in federal highway funds and $266 million for bridge replacements under the $1.2 billion infrastructure bill being fought over in the Senate this weekend, according to figures released by the Biden White House.
Other features would include $354 million for public transportation and $100 million for statewide broadband access.
All of the spending would be over five years.
U.S. Sen. James Lankford voiced his opposition to the measure, saying the bipartisan bill is too expensive and too long.
U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, meanwhile, lent his support to an amendment adding nearly $50 billion in defense spending, more than half of it for Navy and Coast Guard shipyards.
The Biden administration said almost $10.6 million is allocated for Oklahoma in the $3.46 billion Federal Emergency Management Administration’s new grant program for projects to mitigate the effects of climate change.
