Cornyn: Texans’ feedback invaluable as Senate debates next Relief Bill

WASHINGTON – Monday on the Senate floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed the importance of the feedback he received from Texans during the State Work Period as he returns to the Senate to push for the next coronavirus relief legislation. 

Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks about the bill today are below, and video of his remarks can be found above.

“I was glad to get back home and spend some time talking to the men and women who are continuing to deal with the hurdles brought on by this pandemic.”

“I’ve heard from medical professionals on the front lines of this fight, researchers and scientists that are racing to find treatments and vaccines, small business owners just hanging on by the skin of their teeth, trying to keep their businesses afloat and their employees’ jobs intact.”

“Their feedback has been invaluable, as always, to the work of the Senate as we have worked to pass four coronavirus bills to support them during this challenging period.”

“I know these are difficult conversations that are happening across the country, and I’m grateful for the hard work and dedication of incredible educators who are figuring out how to keep our children safe, while continuing to give them the education they deserve and they need.”

“I come back to Washington with fresh ideas and I’m eager to get to work so we can provide additional support for the Texans who have been impacted so dramatically by this virus.”

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.
