Washington D.C. - Congressman Hice released the following statement in response to the Administration's announcement of the final agreement in nuclear negotiations with Iran:

"I had the privilege of attending a joint session of Congress in which Prime Minister Netanyahu warned America, and the wider world, about the dangers of a nuclear armed Iran. I heard first-hand from the Prime Minister about the catastrophic consequences resulting from a bad deal. While the Administration high-fives themselves over this deal, American citizens are left empty-handed and without many of the commitments the Administration assured us would be part of the deal.

It's hard to see how this deal benefits the American people, our allies, or the international community. This deal took nearly two years to negotiate and yet still inadequately addresses our overwhelming concern whether Iran, the largest state sponsor of terror, will limit its nuclear activity to peaceful purposes. It is now up to Congress to thoroughly analyze and debate the merit of this deal and act in the best interest of those we represent. As stated in the April 8th letter several of my House Colleagues and I sent to the President, the only acceptable outcome of the negotiations is for Iran to abandon its nuclear program. I look forward to reviewing this deal and will do all in my power to protect the American people, and our allies, from the raw deal the Administration brokered on our behalf."

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.
