    Washington, D.C. – While there have been vast improvements to our aviation security since the horrific terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, our adversaries continue to target commercial aviation and are aggressively pursuing innovative methods to execute their attacks. Back in 2016, I learned an alarming fact: the U.S. Federal Air Marshal Service (FAMS) – which does a lot to keep us safe – does not factor in risk when deploying marshals onto flights. It’s clear that there’s more that can be ... Read more

    Washington, D.C. – If you watched President Trump’s State of the Union address in January, you probably heard him champion efforts that would give millions of Americans the hope of extending or saving their lives by providing dying patients easier access to experimental therapies and medications. Too many of us know or have known family and friends who, after months or even years of medical treatment, have been told “there’s nothing else we can do.” It is incredibly disheartening and frustrating...

    Washington, D.C. – By creating a foundation of innovation, resilience, and sound business policies, I’m proud that Georgia has become an incubator where companies can thrive. This past week brought more exciting news for the state as Governor Nathan Deal welcomed a new corporate citizen – Facebook – to the community with the construction of its ninth data center. I was humbled to be a part of this momentous occasion, and I’m looking forward to fostering this new, long-term partnership. Based in ... Read more

    Washington, D.C. – The Olympic theme song stokes our emotions and brings back so many great memories.

Every two years, we have the opportunity to come together as a Nation to cheer on and celebrate our most exceptional athletes during the Olympic Games. With a... Read more

    In Case You Missed It… Black History Month time to reflect on contributions By Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) As we celebrate Black History Month this February, I encourage you to take the opportunity to recognize and reflect on the hardships, triumphs and achievements of African-Americans and individuals of African descent throughout our nation’s history. There are civil rights giants, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and Georgia’s own Congressman John Lewis, who remind us of the power of br... Read more

    Washington, D.C. – From rebuilding our military to tax and regulatory reform, President Trump’s first year included many notable accomplishments. On Tuesday, during his first State of the Union address, he focused on the good that is happening in our Nation and laid out bold ideas and clear goals for the upcoming year. President Trump spoke from the heart, and I’m thankful that he continues to tackle some of the Nation’s most pressing issues head-on as we work to improve the lives of Americans a... Read more

    In Case You Missed It… Providing for the common defense is more than just a promise to our citizens and military. It is the foremost responsibility of the federal government, established in the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution. Just recently, I was nominated by my colleagues to serve as the newest member of the House Armed Services Committee, which has jurisdiction over all defense and military policy, nuclear weapons production and military installations across our nation. At a time when Ameri... Read more

    Washington, D.C. – The right to life is one of the most primary and fundamental rights that we, as human beings, share. Without this right, there can be no right to liberty or to the pursuit of happiness. As many of you know, I have dedicated much of my time both in Congress and as a pastor to promoting a culture of life. 45 years ago, the Supreme Court issued its disheartening decision on the Roe v. Wade case. This weekend, thousands of teachers, students, pastors, priests, and families from ev... Read more

This week, my Constitutional charge to provide for the common defense expanded with my nomination and subsequent placement onto the House Armed Services Committee (HASC), which oversees all defense priorities, military policy, and installations across the country.

    Washington, D.C. – The United States’ position as the leader of the free world is built upon the strength of our military and its capacity to meet any challenge. However, in recent years, we have witnessed our military readiness and capabilities decline to a point of alarm. As it stands, we have too many planes that can’t fly and ships that can’t sail, while global threats abound. The American people have given Republicans the opportunity to lead in Congress, with a promise that we would not onl... 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.
