    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA) recently introduced H.R. 1364, the Official Time Reform Act, which would prohibit federal employees from grassroots lobbying while on “official time,” a practice by which federal employees are legally permitted to conduct union-related activities – during the work day – instead of performing the jobs they were hired to do. The bill would also prohibit employees who spend more than 80% of their work on official time from counting that time as credit... Read more

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
