Cornyn Signs onto New Ports-to-Plains Corridor from Laredo to Amarillo

News

WASHINGTON –Today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) announced his support for a new bill establishing a Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor from Laredo to Amarillo, stopping along the way in Del Rio, Midland-Odessa, San Angelo, and Lubbock.  The proposed divided highway corridor would originate in Mexico and continue through West Texas to Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, and ultimately up north through Canada and the Pacific Northwest.

“Texas is already the largest state exporter of goods, and adding an artery connecting us to Mexico and Canada will mean better access to markets for Texas farmers, ranchers, and producers,” said Sen. Cornyn.  “I look forward to working with my colleagues representing states all along the Ports-to-Plains Corridor to bring this plan to fruition.”

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