WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, the United States House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act for FY’16 (S.1356), an annual measure that authorizes funding for the Department of Defense and establishes our national security priorities for the next fiscal year. Last month, the President vetoed similar legislation that enjoyed bipartisan support. Congressman Hice released the following statement in regards to the passage of the measure:

“Two weeks ago, the President vetoed this vitally important defense bill. Utilizing the office of Commander and Chief to engage in political games while our troops are on the battlefield is deplorable. Now, for the second time, Congress has acted to ensure that the Department of Defense — and our brave men and women in uniform — have the resources and stability they need to continue protecting our Nation.

It is my hope that the President will use this second chance to sign the NDAA to ensure that our military remains agile, efficient, ready, and lethal.”

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.
