Yesterday, Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) introduced H.R. 3138, the Military Recruiter Right to Carry Act of 2015. Hice introduced the measure in response to the terrorist attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee which claimed the lives of five military service personnel. Hice released the following statement in response to the introduction of the measure:

“Our nation grieves for the lives lost in the appalling terrorist attack in Chattanooga. The servicemen and women assigned to duty at recruitment offices should have the same right to carry and protect themselves as private citizens. These recruitment centers are where many brave young people choose to serve our nation and neither they nor those on duty should have to worry about their safety. By granting our heroes at recruitment centers the right to carry, we ensure that these centers continue the legacy of bolstering a strong national defense rather than making them a target for terrorist attacks.”

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.
