Keeping the Victoria metropolitan statistical area, or MSA, status is a focus Rep. Michael Cloud said he is discussing with federal agencies after the announcement that the area’s population might cause the city to lose its metro status.

Tuesday, Cloud addressed and then spoke with business leaders during the weekly Victoria Economic Development Corp. partnership meeting about how losing the metro status could mean losing much of the federal funding that comes along with it. He also talked about border security.
