    Our veterans are inherently selfless, having put their lives on the line to defend our freedom – often while their families put everything on hold waiting for these heroes to return home. Unfortunately, problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) have persisted for years, and many of our returning heroes face uphill battles to receive the benefits they deserve and earned. Even worse, the VA’s routine and pervasive refusal to seriously discipline employees who have engaged in proven incom... 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.
