Coalition for Critical Infrastructure
A project of the Texas Civil Justice League
The Coalition for Critical Infrastructure (CCI) has been formed to help maintain Texas’ positive business climate and quality of life by addressing our growing need for roads and highways; oil, natural gas and water pipelines; electric transmission and distribution lines; drainage and flood control; and other important infrastructure projects. CCI includes both public and private entities that help make Texas the 10th largest economy in the world, care about the future of Texas, and are dedicated to the state’s ability to grow and prosper.
GET THE FACTS
The Texas Constitution recognizes that the use of eminent domain to acquire property for infrastructure proposes benefits the citizenry, but is intended to be used only as a last resort. CCI strongly believes in a strong and durable framework that treats property owners respectfully and fairly, promotes the efficient and timely resolution of disputes, and strengthens long-term relationships between property owners and infrastructure development.
