WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA) today released the following statement after S. 756, the FIRST Step Act, passed the U.S. House of Representatives:

“With the passage of S. 756, the First Step Act, we are taking important action in reforming our criminal justice system while saving taxpayer dollars and ensuring second chances for those who rehabilitate and re-enter society through training and skill development,” said Representative Hice. “Programs, like drug and accountability courts, and working to reduce recidivism rates in the prison systems are commendable, and I look forward to seeing more meaningful strides toward reform while ensuring that the rule of law is upheld and strengthened. Throughout this process, I’m proud Governor Nathan Deal, the State of Georgia, and Congressman Doug Collins have served as vanguards for criminal justice reform and helped work this bill through the federal level to emulate our state’s record of achievement. Today is a win for both redemption and public safety.”

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.
