Blunt plans to meet with defense contractors, explain Senate Armed Services Committee role

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (Jan. 25, 2013) — U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt’s office has announced that people from Fort Leonard Wood will be included in a Springfield meeting this afternoon during which Blunt will discuss his new role as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Today’s event will be at 3 p.m. at the Army National Guard Armory on 1400 North Fremont Avenue. Held in Classroom One at the armory, the event is billed as a meeting with regional defense contractors and vendors from southwest Missouri. Other national defense issues will also be discussed.

Before being elected to the Senate in 2010, Blunt had been a senior Republican member of the House of Representatives serving a district centered in Springfield. He was initially placed on the Senate Intelligence Committee, but recently moved to the Senate Armed Services Committee where he serves alongside Sen. Clare McCaskill, who was re-elected in November to a six-year term. Missouri is unusual in having both senators as members of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler, whose district includes both Fort Leonard Wood and Whiteman Air Force Base, is a member of the House Armed Services Committee.
