U.S. Senator Roger Wicker in South Mississippi

The Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee has made his way to South Mississippi today, where he plans to spend the next few days.
U.S. Senator Roger Wicker took time out of his busy schedule to stop by WXXV’s studio to talk state and national politics.
Topping his national agenda are concerns over what he calls the lack of monitoring Iran’s nuclear development. Senator Wicker says he will join other members in Congress to vote a measure to disapprove President Obama’s agreement.
Closer to home, Senator Wicker says high insurance is the biggest remaining problem from Katrina. “The increase in the premiums is still a huge problem. What we did lately, was to take time out there and say we aren’t going to get these huge premiums take effect. So, we put a stop to that. We’re looking at it. It’s not a permanent solution.”
The Senator will be traveling throughout South Mississippi over the next few days as we approach the tenth anniversary of Katrina.
