Texas Senator Pens Letter To President Urging Approval Of Disaster Declaration

U.S. Senator John Cornyn sent a letter to President Barack Obama urging him to approve Texas Governor Greg Abbott's request for a major disaster declaration.

That declaration is aimed to help areas in Texas devastated by winter storms, tornadoes and flooding since December 26th.

In his letter Sen. Cornyn asked the president to expedite the processing and approval of the state's request so that affected communities and constituents, many of whom experienced multiple major disasters last year, can better recover from this tragedy.
