“I believe the Texas Coastal Spine is a step in the right direction. The Texas Gulf Coast is home to millions of people, countless homes and jobs, and numerous refineries and this project will reduce the impact of hurricanes and tropical storms. I have been pushing for this critical project in Congress for years, and this year we received authorization to request federal funding for the project,” Weber said.
