WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, the United States House of Representatives passed H.R. 3662, the Iran Terror Finance Transparency Act. Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) issued the following statement after the measure passed:

“There is no doubt that the President’s Iran Deal will go down as one of the worst agreements in the history of our Nation. As it stands, the deal hands a check worth more than $100 billion in sanctions relief to Iran, the world’s foremost state sponsor of terror. The United States should be doing all we can to prevent Iran from distributing funds to terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, not enabling it do so.

The results of this deal are increasingly disastrous. Last week, Secretary of State John Kerry candidly admitted that some of the funds made available as a result of sanctions relief will inevitably end up in the hands of terrorists. This week, Iran’s supreme leader awarded medals to Iranian navy commanders for holding 10 U.S. Navy sailors hostage. Next week, without immediate Congressional action, the results of the Administration’s negotiations and interactions with Iran could prove even worse.

Accordingly, I was pleased today to support H.R. 3662, the Iran Terror Finance Transparency Act, which will ensure that no Iranian bank, business, or individual who trades in terror commodities can profit from the President’s shortsighted deal-making.”

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.
