Most often, my staff and I help 10th District residents with Social Security claims, federal disability filings, Internal Revenue Service headaches, veterans’ benefits and immigration requests. So far this year, we’ve handled nearly 1,100 requests for assis... Read more

    Washington, D.C. – Economic opportunities are abound in Georgia, and the 10th District certainly is no exception. In the Covington-Newton County area, the explosive growth of the film and manufacturing industries is welcoming new ventures, like Three Ring Studios, Shire Biologics, and General Mills, to its community. I’m also encouraged by expansions that are happening in Milledgeville and Monticello such as the development of Norton Packaging. But progress shouldn’t be limited to certain areas,... Read more

  • Curbing Excessive Spending Little by Little
    Posted in Columns on September 14, 2017 | Preview rr

    Washington, D.C. – Fiscal responsibility. Politicians talk about it frequently, but it seems like none are willing to take action to make it a reality. When it comes down to it, these two little words are all about identifying government waste and eliminating it, which is exactly what my colleague, Iowa Senator Joni Ernst, and I are doing. Last week, the two of us introduced companion legislation in both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate, called the Presidential Allowance Moderni... 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.
