Lt. Governor Patrick: Statement on the Filing of
Senate Bill 28 - Texas Ports Act

AUSTIN - Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued this statement today following the filing of Senate Bill 28 - Texas Ports Act by Senator Brandon Creighton, (R - Conroe):

"Texas ports serve as gateways to the state economy - creating nearly 1.6 million jobs for Texans. In order for Texas to remain the number one exporting state we must continue to enhance connectivity to ports and invest in port infrastructure. SB 28 will accomplish this goal by providing critical funding opportunities that ensure that our ports remain competitive.

"I commend Sen. Creighton for his commitment to our ports and strengthening Texas' economy."
