Unfortunately, most people who have dealt – in any way – with the government know two things: progress is slow and the red tape is never-ending. This pattern is deeply ingrained at nearly every level of every agency in an almost systematic way. Simply put, inefficiency is running rampant. Serving as Vice Chairman of... 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.
