First District Congressman James Comer gave several updates concerning the War on Carp, the state of healthcare within the nation, better access to broadband internet services, and more during a Legislative Breakfast at the Lyon Convention Center in Eddyville Monday morning.

Congressman Comer stated that while the War on Carp has been mostly positive overall there’s still much to do to rid the invasive species from Kentucky’s waterways.

The Congressman ended the update by noting the infrastructure crisis in America and stated his hope is that reliable internet access will become a utility, much like electricity.

Congressman Comer also spoke about the importance of representatives governing and doing what’s best for the people rather than just strictly advocating for what they believe their political party should.
