U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) joined Corsicana Mayor Chuck McClanahan, Navarro County Judge H.M. Davenport, and local job creators Thursday April 13 for a roundtable discussion on legislative issues that affect Corsicana's economy, including trade, infrastructure, labor, and environmental regulation.

"I listened to local business about what they need to continue to grow and prosper," Cornyn said at a press conference after the discussion. "I now have a better understanding of what we can do as legislatures to help ease the burden on these companies."

Civic and industry leaders invited to the roundtable discussions included: Chuck McClanahan, Mayor, City of Corsicana; H.M. Davenport, County Judge, Navarro County; Joanna Fritz, President & CEO, Navarro County Chamber of Commerce; Brendan Culloty, Plant Manager, Guardian Industries Corp.; Eric Meyers, President, Oil City Iron Works; Will McNutt, VP Corporate Counsel, Collin Street Bakery; Shawn Eastman, President, Polyguard; Scott Janecka, Plant Manager, Cresline.

"We planted some seeds he can take back to Washington," McClanahan said. "I think Sen. Cornyn better understands tha needs, concerns and desires of rural Texas and will follow through and help."

Sen. Cornyn toured the Oil City Iron Works facility and Guardian Industries' factory during his visit.

"For me personally and on behalf of Oil City Iron Works, it was an excellent open discussion on critical issues, primarily technologically and economically infeasible rules and regulations several federal agencies have rolled out under the previous administration, and why now is the perfect opportunity to tackle these truly overburdening regulations," Meyers said. "Senator Cornyn was very open and understood the harm these regulations are doing to our economy."

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