[SDCPJ] Let's not forget about nuclear disarmament!

Let's not forget about nuclear disarmament!

Congress is at a turning point. In the last 16 months, lawmakers have ratified the New START treaty to reduce the number of deployed nuclear weapons, increased funding to prevent these weapons' spread, and blocked the start of a $5 billion nuclear weapons facility.

Under pressure to cut the federal deficit, Congress and the administration are questioning whether the U.S. should continue to spend billions of dollars a year to maintain 5,000 nuclear warheads and the systems to launch these weapons at unknown enemies.

Yet lawmakers need to hear that constituents support this progress and want more. This edition of the Washington Newsletter covers the prospects for the signing of a Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, discusses the mounting tensions with Iran, and lays out a blueprint for a world without nuclear weapons.
