Luetkemeyer Chosen to Serve as 2021 NDAA Conferee
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy announced Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) has been chosen to serve as a conferee on the House-Senate Conference Committee for the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
“Reauthorizing the NDAA is one of Congress’ most important jobs each year. It is critical that we ensure the brave men and women of America’s military have everything they could possibly need to continue defending this country. As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, one of my main priorities is to enhance our nation’s defense against illicit finance and money laundering in order to maintain America’s financial security. I am honored to have been chosen and look forward to getting to work.”
On Congressman Luetkemeyer’s selection, Leader McCarthy said, “Blaine is a patriot whose love of country and understanding of our national security threats make him a natural choice to help get this critical defense bill signed into law. Through his time in Congress, he has distinguished himself as an effective and results-driven leader who puts the priorities of his constituents above all else. His broad experience will help bring a unique perspective to the NDAA process that will help deliver an outcome that our service members both need and deserve.”
