“I am fairly confident that we are going to get there this spring,” Heminger said.

Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) as well as US Reps. Bill Flores (R-Texas) and John Shimkus (R-Illinois) have joined others discussing potential legislation on the program.
