Nuclear Age Peace Foundation EDITABLE LETTER to your Representative:  

Co-Sponsor HR1334 for a Nuclear Weapon-Free World

I am writing to strongly urge you to co-sponsor HR1334, the Nuclear Weapons Abolition and Economic and Energy Conversion Act of 2011. The bill, introduced by Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), calls on the United States to negotiate an international agreement to disable and dismantle its nuclear weapons by 2020 and provides for strict control of fissile material and radioactive waste. It also calls for the use of nuclear-free energy resources.
This bill is particularly timely as Congress continues to make cuts to most programs in the federal budget. The United States currently spends over $50 billion each year on nuclear weapons and their delivery systems.
I hope to see your name among the co-sponsors of this important bill.
