President Trump signs Rep. Ratcliffe, Sen. Cornyn Lake Fannin legislation

WASHINGTON – President Trump signed Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) and Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-Texas) legislation today to reduce the federal estate in Texas by restoring the local control of 2,025 acres of Fannin County land.

“I’m incredibly pleased that our bill to restore the local control of Lake Fannin has finally crossed the finish line and is now the law of the land. Thanks to the strong support of President Trump, collaboration with Senator Cornyn and his staff, and the hard work of my staff and our state and local officials, we’ve successfully taken back 2,025 acres of Texas land from the hands of Washington bureaucrats,” Ratcliffe said. “I’m grateful for the efforts of all parties involved who helped bring this huge win to Northeast Texas, and I look forward to the increased tourism and local success we’ll see in our region now that the constituents I’m proud to represent can resume management of the land in their own backyards.”

“After years of working closely with local officials, Rep. Ratcliffe, and my colleagues in the Senate, I’m proud that North Texans will finally have control over the Fannin County recreation area,” Cornyn said. “I want to thank President Trump for signing this critical bill into law and Rep. Ratcliffe for his hard work to get this over the finish line.”
