Representative Carter, Bipartisan Lawmakers Introduce MINOR Act


(Washington, DC)- Yesterday, Representative John Carter (TX-31) introduced the Military Installation Non-Adult Offender Reform (MINOR) Act, along with Representatives Roger Williams (R-TX-25) and Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28).

These agreements will give jurisdiction of juvenile-on-juvenile crimes that happen on military installations to civilian authorities.

U.S. Rep. John Carter: America is strong and we will recover


When this year began, our economy was on fire. The Lone Star State had closed out a strong 2019 with Texans opening 224,099 new businesses, and we were the number one job creator in the nation. The country was doing better. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, passed by Republicans, meant people had more money in their pocket to put food on the table, pay for their kids’ dance lessons, or take a vacation. There were plenty of jobs, businesses were thriving, and people felt secure enough to invest and spend.
