GOP Lawmakers Introduce Bill To End DEI At Federal Level

Republicans in Congress unveiled a bill on Wednesday geared toward getting rid of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs across the federal bureaucracy that have been embraced by the Biden administration.

The 48-page bill seeks to “ensure equal protection of the law, to prevent racism in the Federal Government.” It targets not only federal offices and personnel but also training, contractors, grants, advisory committees, education, and other matters.

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH), who is a contender to be former President Donald Trump’s running mate in this year’s election, introduced the “Dismantle DEI Act” in the Senate while Rep. Michael Cloud (R-TX) introduced the House version.

“The DEI agenda is a destructive ideology that breeds hatred and racial division. It has no place in our federal government or anywhere else in our society,” Vance said in a statement accompanying the release of the legislation.

President Joe Biden has signed multiple executive orders to infuse DEI into the federal bureaucracy. In a recent speech, Biden said the values of DEI “are the core strength of America” and touted having the “most diverse administration in history.”

As reported by The Daily Wire, the Biden administration has leveraged race and sexuality-based employee associations to push for leftwing policies within the administrative state. A prior GOP bill sought to cut funding to medical schools incorporating DEI.
