If El Pasoans believe that having JOe Pickett chairing that position will funnel millions into the city, don't hold your breath. Republicans still have the majority which will hamper, influence, deter whatever he may have in mind for the city.
Road construction funds will still continue flowing to the big players: Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin. El Paso has always gotten the crumbs.

Rep. Joe Pickett's through knowledge of the state’s transportation needs and a deep understanding of the difficult funding choices Texas faces will serve him and us well in the coming weeks and months. Texas is growing at an average of more than 1200 Texans each day and the recent 2030 Committee found that Texas needs an astounding $313 billion for transportation infrastructure over the next 20 years. As Chairman Pickett and his committee members move forward with their work, we urge them to keep all funding tools available including comprehensive development agreements, user fees through tolls, enhancements to traditional fuel taxes, and local option funding.

I hope he can bring better and more roads in El Paso.
Maybe he can work on better roads from the border direct to UMC (formerly Thomason)
