DETAILS

Sen. Cornyn’s office commented on the recent meeting and the progress that was made.

“Sen. Cornyn and members of the Texas Access to Justice Commission discussed the Legal Services Corporation (LSC), which is a congressionally-established nonprofit tasked with increasing access to civil legal services for low-income individuals, veterans, survivors of domestic violence, and those dealing with natural disasters, where civil law issues have significant consequences,” Sen. Cornyn’s office told SE Texas Record.

While Sen. Cornyn’s office was not able to go into great detail regarding the topics discussed, it is clear that the priority of the senator is to ensure that LSC is given the tools and resources it needs to thrive in years to come. LSC funds projects ranging from protecting disabled veterans, protecting low-income families from violence, helping low-income individuals and families hold onto their homes and responding to national disasters.
