    U.S. Representative John R. Carter represents Texas' 31st Congressional District, which includes Williamson and Bell counties.In the 116th Congress, Rep. Carter sits on the Defense Subcomittee on Appropriations and he is the Ranking Member on the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Appropriations. In addition, he serves as Co-Chairman of the bipartisan House Army Caucus and is member of the House Republicans Steering Committee, a leadership position.

    Since his first election in 2002, Congressman Carter has established himself as a leader in Congress who has the foresight and courage to author and support numerous pieces of legislation that would increase the protection of U.S. citizens and bring justice to those who threaten our freedom and way of life.

    Congressman Carter is one of the few House Members who has authored legislation signed into law under Presidents Bush, Obama and Trump. Despite being a veteran Congressman, John Carter is still known as "Judge" for having served over 20 years on the district court bench in Williamson County, which he won as the first county-wide elected Republican in Williamson County in modern history. Before becoming a Judge, Congressman Carter had a successful private law practice and continued to practice law while serving as the Municipal Judge in Round Rock.
