Washington, D.C. – Representative Jody Hice (GA-10) today released the following statement after receiving the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence. This award is given to Members of Congress in recognition of their support for issues critical to manufacturing in the United States. Hice scored 100% based on 27 key votes on the NAM's 115th Congressional Voting Record.

“Manufacturing means jobs,” said Congressman Hice. “Through my many site visits to local manufacturers, I’ve seen a strong surge of economic growth and job creation in the 10th District, and we must continue to support our local businesses and inspire our young people to enter these lucrative fields. A thriving manufacturing sector puts people to work, drives growth, and bolsters our economy, and I am proud to be associated with the outstanding work the NAM is doing on behalf of manufacturers in Georgia and across the Nation. I want to thank the National Association of Manufacturers for this honor, and I share the NAM’s vision of enhancing America’s position as the best place in the world to manufacture and attract investment.”

“In Georgia and across America, manufacturers are creating jobs, investing in communities and raising wages. That’s a direct result of Congressman Hice’s support for policies that have strengthened manufacturing and created opportunities for America’s manufacturing workers,” said NAM Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse. “The NAM is proud to stand with lawmakers like Rep. Hice who understand manufacturing’s critical contributions to our economy and are working actively to advance the manufacturing agenda.”

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.
