Cruz News: September 30, 2017

September 30, 2017




September 30, 2017


As Texans rebuild, Congress must act quickly to provide immediate relief, which is why I sponsored legislation, along with Senator Cornyn and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, to deliver timely tax relief to storm survivors from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. This legislation, passed with bipartisan support from both the House and the Senate and headed to President Donald Trump’s desk to be signed into law, will help those affected by the hurricanes keep their hard-earned money as they rebuild. Together as Americans, we will continue to work to rebuild the storm-ravaged areas of Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico, and I am confident we will come back stronger.

One of my top priorities in the Senate continues to be jobs, because that is the top priority of Texans. And the best lever for job growth is cutting and simplifying taxes. This week, I released a video highlighting my priorities for fundamental tax reform. I also appeared on Fox Business Network’s ‘Mornings with Maria,’ where I discussed the needfor a genuine tax cut for individuals, families, and small businesses.

This week I was delighted to see that President Trump nominated Don Willett, JimHo, and Kyle Duncan to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. I am thrilled to support these principled constitutionalists and I know they will serve the people of Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi extraordinarily well.

And as always, my Senate office, led by our Hurricane Harvey recovery working group, continues to work to ensure swift and effective service to Texans and Texas communities in need of federal assistance following the storm. If you need additional information or assistance during the recovery and rebuilding process, please do not hesitate to contact my office or utilize the federal and state resources listed here.

Please read below for an update from this last week.
