Help with a Federal Agency
ALERT: Both mailing and processing of passports has been significantly delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The State Department advises that passports could take 18 weeks for routine service and 12 weeks for expedited service. My office is unable to expedite passport service for vacation travel. Please ensure you have your passport and all required documents before booking your trip. More information on passport operations is available HERE.
If you can't get an answer from a federal agency in a timely fashion, or if you feel you have been treated unfairly, our office may be able to help resolve a problem or get you the information you need. While we cannot guarantee you a favorable outcome, we will do our best to help you receive a fair and timely response to your problem.
Residents of the 2nd Congressional District of New Mexico can contact us for assistance in dealing with Federal agencies.
