ERIC SCHMITT, Senator for Missouri

The Public Service Reform Act would make all executive branch employees at-will

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Eric Schmitt joined Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) in cosponsoring the Public Service Reform Act. This bill would more easily allow the termination of ineffective or ill-intentioned federal employees:

“Washington is in desperate need of meaningful structural reform, and this bill is a step in the right direction. The Public Service Reform Act targets a source of frustration for many Americans – unelected bureaucrats in Washington with far too much power over the American people who are not accountable to anyone. I promised to fight back against the administrative state, and I’m proud to join Senator Scott on this important bill,” said Senator Eric Schmitt.  

“I’ve spent my life leading organizations of every shape and size. Whether running a small donut shop, America’s largest health care company, or the great state of Florida, I know from firsthand experience the importance of having an effective and dedicated team that shares a common mission. It’s clear that the bureaucracy of the federal government is both a waste of taxpayer dollars and inefficient. Red tape and bloated federal agencies constantly slow down progress and hamper American innovation. It’s time to change Washington so it actually works for the American people. ThePublic Service Reform Act will boost accountability and responsiveness across the federal government by making all executive branch employees at-will. This is common sense and I urge my colleagues to join us in supporting this good bill,” said Senator Rick Scott.
