Hice Lauds the Passage of 2018 Farm Bill
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA) today released the following statement after the passage of H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018, known as the 2018 Farm Bill.
“America’s farmers work hard every day to provide food and fiber to people worldwide, and I’m pleased that the 2018 Farm Bill outlines our country’s agriculture policy for the next several years,” said Congressman Hice. “This bill reinforces our commitment to farmers and ranchers from coast to coast and provides much-needed certainty to America’s agriculture community by supporting research and development, reauthorizing market access programs, and investing in the responsible conservation of natural resources.”
“Furthermore, I’m glad this measure contains historic improvements to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to help recipients break the cycle of poverty by including work requirements for able-bodied adults receiving federal nutrition assistance and robustly funding workforce development programs,” Hice continued. “It also expands opportunities for rural broadband development in our communities and repeals the Obama-era regulatory power grab known as the Waters of the U.S. Rule (WOTUS). These commonsense improvements are an important step forward, and I look forward to supporting Georgia priorities as this measure moves to conference.”

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.Casework Authorization Form
