Rep. Hice Lauds Launch of Commission on Unalienable Rights
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA) today issued the following statement regarding the establishment of the Commission on Unalienable Rights by the State Department. This advisory committee will provide recommendations and propose reforms to the Secretary of State concerning human rights issues on an international scale:
“Our Nation was built upon a foundation of unalienable rights,” said Congressman Hice. “Inherent in our Constitution is the conviction that every man, woman, and child is instilled with certain rights, endowed – not by the government – but by our Creator. Unfortunately, at times, these principles have been lost, and institutions of government have departed from that primary purpose. As we reaffirm our dedication to strengthening liberty from generation to generation, both at home and abroad, I commend President Trump and Secretary Pompeo for their leadership in standing up for American values and defending our most fundamental rights. I’m proud to support the creation of this critical commission, and I look forward to promoting this initiative as we champion the basic dignity and autonomy of each and every person.”

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
