Sen. Rick Scott on Senate Floor: We Must Keep Our Bases and Military Members Safe

March 5, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott spoke on the Senate floor about his Secure U.S. Bases Act, cosponsored by Senator Joni Ernst, to reform and improve foreign military student training programs following the terrorist attack at Naval Air Station Pensacola on December 6th, 2019. The Secure U.S. Bases Act requires a thorough vetting process before a foreign student enters the U.S.; creates a special, limited visa for foreign students; and establishes a review process so that DOD is not operating training programs in the U.S. that would be better operated abroad.
