    Who of us would be allowed to keep our jobs and get full retirement benefits if we spent 100% of our day doing work that we weren’t hired to do? Surprisingly, some federal employees are allowed to do just that. This practice, known as “official time,” allows federal employees to engage in union activities during regular working hours, rather than perform the job they were hired to do.

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.
