2018 Fed 100
Federal 100: Austin Agrella
Name: Austin Agrella
Title: Legislative Director
Organization: Office of Rep. Will Hurd
The background man. Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) describes Agrella as persistent, hardworking and an unbelievably quick study. The congressman also credits his aide as the intellectual spark plug behind last year’s Modernizing Government Technology Act. Agrella was the lead writer of the act, so his influence can be found throughout the legislative process. When the bill stalled in the Senate after passing the House, Agrella was the person Hurd sent to negotiate with the staff of Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) to help push the bill over the finish line.
