ERIC SCHMITT, Senator for Missouri

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Eric Schmitt and Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) introduced the AI and Critical Technology Workforce Framework Act, which would strengthen America’s workforce pipeline in artificial intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, and other critical technologies and ensure that these jobs are kept in the United States rather than being outsourced to other countries:

“I’m proud to introduce the AI and Critical Technology Workforce Framework Act with Senator Gary Peters. This bill will ensure that America continues to have a strong and increasingly skilled workforce, will utilize AI to bolster American industry, and will incentivize companies to keep their jobs in the United States rather than outsourcing them overseas. Additionally, this bill’s potential to benefit our defense capabilities is endless,” said Senator Eric Schmitt.

“As artificial intelligence continues to play a bigger role in our society, it’s critical the future of this groundbreaking technology is formed in the United States. The way to ensure that happens is by building a workforce engaged in these new technologies,” said Senator Gary Peters. “My bipartisan bill will strengthen our nation’s workforce pipeline for generations to come, helping to drive transformative developments in AI and other emerging technology sectors.”
