  • Legislative Update
    Posted in Columns on July 27, 2017 | Preview rr

    Washington, D.C. – With all the noise coming out of Washington lately, big-ticket items, like health care and tax reform, have been on the forefront of most of our minds. While these are important issues that we’re tackling, they’ve also drowned out some of the other valuable things that Congress is doing. With that in mind, I want to take the time to outline a few of my own legislative proposals that I’m very proud to be introducing in the coming months. Just a few short weeks ago, the House pa...

    Washington, D.C. – Americans have always been on the forefront of innovation, creating new ideas and growing businesses from the ground up. Our work ethic and quality craftsmanship are the heart and soul of our Nation. That heart – present in so many of our small business owners – is one of the things that makes America great. Not only do American companies provide high-quality goods and services, but they also provide much-needed jobs in our communities. On Monday, President Trump kicked off “M... Read more

    Washington, D.C. – The day I was sworn in as your Representative in Congress, I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. There is no promise that I take more seriously than this one. For too long, our military has struggled to complete the tasks they’ve been given – not because of a lack of skill or dedication, but because the government has failed to provide our men and women in uniform with the tools and resources neces...

    Washington, D.C. – Illegal immigration is not a new problem. It’s one of the primary issues that I came to Washington to solve. For too long, we’ve seen cities and municipalities unilaterally enact policies that directly contradict federal law, providing safe havens for people who are in our country unlawfully. This is simply unacceptable. With President Trump in the White House and a Republican majority in Congress, we now have a real chance to make meaningful and tangible changes to our broken...

    Washington, D.C. – A job is more than just making money and cashing a paycheck. It’s about finding a purpose and building a life. More importantly, it’s an integral part of the American dream: The idea that, with hard work, anyone can start from the ground up to create a better life for themselves, their children, and their grandchildren. America is the best in the world – bar none – at providing the opportunities that make that dream possible. Sadly, times have been hard. Many American workers ... Read more

  • Thin Blue Line

    Washington, D.C. – Every American law enforcement officer – police, sheriffs, detectives, deputies, other first responders – makes a promise to this country. They will fight to their last breath to keep our country and communities safe. We see example after example of them running into danger for strangers. They stand between order and chaos, and they always answer the call. Recent events in Putnam County, Georgia, and Alexandria, Virginia, are examples of this commitment. Each and every day, th...

  • Prioritizing Main Street, Not Wall Street

    Washington, D.C. – The Great Recession dealt a blow to our economy from which we still haven’t fully recovered. Many of you have lost jobs, homes, and savings in the devastating aftermath of the financial crisis. In 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act attempted to protect Americans from financial fraud by “being tough” on Wall Street while giving small community banks a chance to compete. In practice, however, Dodd-Frank accomplished the exact opposite through a m... Read more

    In Case You Missed It… A Debt of Gratitude By Rep. Jody Hice As we gather this Memorial Day at backyard barbecues, sunny beaches, and local parks, it’s important to reflect on the reason that we observe this special day: To honor and remember our fallen heroes who sacrificed their lives for our nation. The debt of gratitude we owe each of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice is a debt that cannot be repaid, a debt we should acknowledge not only on Memorial Day, but every day. Every day tha...

    Washington, D.C. – For weeks, I’ve been working tirelessly with President Trump, Vice President Pence, House Leadership, fellow members of the Freedom Caucus, my colleagues in the Tuesday Group, and other Members of Congress to improve H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act. Our shared goal has always been to repeal and replace Obamacare with a better, more affordable health care system. Since health care accounts for almost 1/5th of the American economy, reform proposals have always been conte... Read more

  • Serving is an Honor

    Washington, D.C. – Representing you as the Congressman for Georgia’s 10th District is one of the greatest honors of my life. Having the chance to meet you, share our ideas, hear your thoughts and concerns, as well as what’s working well in your lives, and then head to Washington to fight for you is a task that I deeply value. That’s why claims made by groups, like Indivisible Georgia and Athens for Everyone, that I’m unavailable and inaccessible could not be further from the truth. While I was h... 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.
