This small subseries of issue files comprises various material which was grouped together under "Miscellaneous Issues" by the legislative assistant responsible for these subject areas. These files date from the last Congress that Carper served as representative from Delaware, 1991-1992. The documents provide a general overview of the issues: Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, the Arts, the Postal Service, and Small Business.

Files pertaining to Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia deal with statehood issues and degrees of autonomy. Arts files document funding by the National Endowment for the Arts for 1991 and 1992, and detail controversies surrounding some of the projects partially or totally funded by the NEA. Postal Service files document legislation regarding delivery standards, employee pensions, and postage increases. Small Business files focus on aid and loans to entrepreneurs, minority-owned businesses, and other small business ventures.
