WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, the United States House of Representatives voted to disapprove of two Environmental Protection Agency rules, the “New Source Performance Standards” rule and the “Clean Power Plan” rule. These new rules would impose additional mandates on the Nation’s energy producers. Congressman Hice released the following statement in regards to the passage of the measures:

“I am pleased that the House voted to disapprove of the new EPA rules that would effectively impose cap and trade mandates on our Nation’s energy producers. The EPA has made a habit of abusing its statutory authority through rulemaking which discourages innovation while increasing rates for consumers. Though the names of the EPA rules are seemingly innocuous, the effects of these rules are detrimental. There are twenty-seven States that have filed litigation in order to prevent the EPA from implementing these damaging rules. I am proud that my home state of Georgia is one of them. I look forward to continuing to hold the EPA accountable and preventing the agency from inflicting any additional harm on our Nation’s businesses.”

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.
