Responding to Coronavirus and  Texas District 31

Congressman John Carter

Help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by washing your hands, keeping your distance from others, and staying home if you're feeling ill. "

Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Whether you watch the news, read the paper, or stay updated on social media, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has received significant public attention. Rest assured, my colleagues and I on the Appropriations Committee are working together to reach a deal on funding to assist agencies tasked with controlling the spread of the virus. It's important that the response to this risk is not politicized and instead, Congress focuses on bringing commonsense solutions to keep the American people safe. 

While there's still more to learn about COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are continually providing new information as it becomes available. I encourage you to visit the CDC's website for accurate information on coronavirus, and the Department of State's website for guidance on international travel.

It's important to take steps to protect yourself against infection. Help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by washing your hands, keeping your distance from others, and staying home if you're feeling ill. 

America's VetDogs
Last Tuesday, I had a great meeting with America's VetDogs, an organization that pairs service dogs with American heroes. America's VetDogs provides all of their services at no cost, and I’m thankful for this organization's dedication to our veterans. After sacrificing so much for our country, our veterans deserve the best treatment available.
Civil Air Patrol
I recently had a visit from two constituents with the Civil Air Patrol. The Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program empowers students to develop the skills they need to become leaders in the finest fighting force in the world – the U.S. Armed Forces.

These young cadets also talked with me about their goal of attending one of our nation’s fine Service Academies. If you know a high school student interested in attending a United States Service Academy visit my website for more information!
Congressional Art Competition
Do you know a high school student with a passion for art? The Congressional Art Competition is officially underway! High school students are eligible to submit original artwork to my office for a chance to have their piece hung in the United States Capitol for one year.
