ERIC SCHMITT, Senator for Missouri

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Eric Schmitt successfully passed a large number of amendments in this year’s NDAA. These amendments range from combatting divisive DEI politics in the military to funding modernization efforts amongst Missouri’s multiple military installations:

“I’m proud to have played a critical role in securing funding for our military installations in Missouri, as well as combatting the Biden Administration’s blatant attempts to infuse our military with woke DEI policies in this year’s NDAA. Modernizing our nuclear deterrence, funding our bases at home and abroad, and stripping woke politics out of the world’s greatest meritocracy is essential in order to ensure our military remains the most capable fighting force in the world, especially as we face global threats like China,” said Senator Eric Schmitt.
