U.S. Senator Roy Blunt announced Thursday that he will be serving as a member on the Senate Committee on Armed Services, which works to study and review the nation’s defense policies. Missouri has almost 18-thousand active duty servicemen and women, 25-thousand reservists, and tens of thousands of additional military related personnel, and Blunt says that he looks forward to the critical work facing the Armed Services Committee. He feels that while Congress “must rein in Washington’s out-of-control spending, [but] those cuts should be targeted in a way that does not jeopardize [our] national security or military readiness.” Blunt is leaving the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, but will continue to retain his positions on the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations; the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation; and the U.S. Senate Rules and Administration Committee.
