Cornyn Urges White House to Extend Support for Coronavirus Testing in Texas

June 24, 2020

WASHINGTON – In response to the Trump Administration’s announcement that it would cease federal support for 7 coronavirus testing centers in Texas, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) said the following on a press conference call with Texas reporters today:

“I know there’s concern, concern I share, over some of the statements being made about withdrawing federal support for coronavirus testing in Texas at the end of June. It’s pretty clear to me, and I think it’s clear to all of us, that with the uptick of cases, now is not a time to retreat from our vigilance in testing.”

“I believe that they need to extend that federal support in Texas, at least until we get this most recent uptick in cases addressed.”
