Washington D.C.
Cornyn, Cruz Urge President to Grant Federal Disaster Declaration for South Texas Flooding
Press Release
Tuesday, June 26, 2018

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senators John Cornyn  (R-TX) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) sent a letter to President Trump today in support of Governor Abbott’s request for a federal disaster declaration after extreme flooding ravaged South Texas last week. 

“The Governor and local officials have informed us that the losses in the Rio Grande Valley, particularly in Cameron and Hidalgo counties, are of a magnitude that is beyond the response capability of the state and local government,” they wrote.  “We urge you to strongly support this request and provide any and all emergency measures afforded by the approval of a disaster declaration.” 

“We stand ready and willing to assist in any way possible to ensure prompt evaluation of this request.”
