Cotton, Tillis Introduce NDAA Amendment on Confederate Renaming

Written by Press Release

June 30, 2020

Washington, D.C. – Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and Senator Thom Tillis (R-North Carolina) today introduced an amendment to the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that would create a commission to study all Department of Defense assets that are named after or commemorate the Confederacy or anyone associated with the Confederacy. The commission would submit a list of those assets to both Congress and the Secretary of Defense, who would then decide how to move forward on possible renaming.

“The language in the current NDAA is too broad and gives too much power to an unaccountable and probably unconstitutional commission. My amendment will ensure we carefully study each property and that Congress determines the best way forward,” said Cotton.

“Instead of mandating the renaming of military bases, including Fort Bragg, we need a thoughtful and constructive process that includes the input of our military communities. Our amendment accomplishes that goal,” said Tillis.
