Irragori aseguró que el ganado que ingrese al país de contrabando será sacrificado y explicó que solo dos focos de infección se han detectado en el país, uno en Yacopí, Cundinamarca y otro en Arauca, de los cuales uno se encuentra completamente controlado. "Ese tipo de hechos", precisó.

A more serious battle brewing in the Texas legislature is between rural and urban Texas.

"The distraction of a bathroom bill pulls us away from being competitive as a state", Jeff Moseley, chief executive of the Texas Association of Business, told a rally outside the Capitol. Now, as the Daily Beast notes, the controversial Texas bathroom bill may end up playing an outsize role in the 2018 GOP primary campaigns.

A similar law in North Carolina, partially repealed in March, prompted the relocation of sporting events and economic boycotts that was estimated to have cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars.

With this said, please rest assured I am committed to fighting for our rural communities and will not support legislation in this special session that only benefits the urban areas at the expense of our rural families.
