WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) today voted in favor of H.R. 1301, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2017, which provides responsible funding for the Department of Defense. The measure passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 371 – 48. Representative Hice released the following statement after the bill’s passage:

“There is no higher Constitutional obligation than to provide for our national security. Without question, rebuilding our military will be an enormous task. Today’s passage of the defense appropriations bill was a responsible step towards modernizing our defense arsenal and increasing our military readiness. We must keep pace with the diverse and complex challenges of our time by giving our men and women in uniform the resources they need to carry out their missions effectively and safely.

“In his joint address, President Trump outlined the need to expand our nuclear, cyber, and technological capabilities. I am proud to have voted in favor of a bill that supports these priorities, as well as a 2.1% pay raise for our troops and increased funding for vital weapon programs, including next-generation JSTARS fleet, the Ohio-class submarine replacement program, and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. This legislation gives our military what it needs to identify and stop our adversaries while protecting the American people.”

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.
