WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, the United States House of Representatives passed a resolution, S.J. Res. 22, which nullifies the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) rule.  Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) issued the following statement after the measure passed:

“It is imperative that Georgia’s farmers, homeowners, and members of the agriculture community are not further subjected to ambiguous rules written by unelected bureaucrats like the “Waters of the United States” rule. If left unchecked, this rule would allow the EPA to regulate virtually every puddle, retention pond, or pool loosely defined as a “regional water treasure.” I was pleased to stymie the EPA’s power grab by sending this legislation to the President’s desk, and I encourage him to sign the bill to protect our agricultural community.”

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.
