BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) ––– Dealing with federal bureaucracies means you will likely talk to someone over the phone or travel to a major city, but one congressman in Louisiana says they are meeting people where they are to solve issues.

Rep. Troy Carter calls them ‘Curbside’ Constituent Service Events.

Carter says they have been able to help with issues ranging from needing a passport, immigration, or applying for student or SBA loans. They also have FEMA, Social Security, and IRS representatives to help with other issues.
