After the removal of the Collin County District Clerk’s office from the U.S. State Department’s acceptable passport facilities, Congressman Van Taylor began working with the State Department to determine a long-term solution to meet the passport needs of Collin County residents.
“Many constituents have reached out to me regarding access to the passport services,” Taylor said. “Advocating on their behalf, I’m pleased the State Department as well as the U.S. Postal Service are working with me on these short-term fixes to help alleviate any backlog while we work towards a permanent solution.”
Events will be held in Texas’ Third Congressional District at the Plano Northwest Facility on July 6 and July 20. Complete event details can be found below. No appointment is necessary.
8 a.m.-2 p.m.
8 a.m.-1 p.m.
Plano Northwest, 3905 Hedgcoxe Rd.
This news comes after Taylor sent a letter to Assistant Secretary of Consular Affairs at the State Department regarding the removal of the Collin County District Clerk’s office from the U.S. State Department’s acceptable passport facilities in April.
“I am concerned many of my constituents will now have reduced access to passport services because of this closure,” the letter stated. “Mr. Assistant Secretary, I am writing to bring this matter to your attention and to ask that you consider the effect this decision will have on my community’s access to important passport services.”
