‘I, too, stand ready to support our colleagues working together to find a solution to this important problem.’

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) made the following remarks on the Senate floor after pledging to work to restore the federal crop insurance program in light of anticipated reductions in the Bipartisan Budget Agreement of 2015:

“Texas ranchers and farmers are no stranger to the peril caused by drought and other weather-related events beyond their control. With the current regulatory environment and unforeseen perils they face, I understand the necessity and the viability of the crop insurance program to their livelihoods. So I just wanted to say that I, too, stand ready to support our colleagues working together to find a solution to this important problem.”
