Prohibit New and Destabilizing Nuclear Weapons
The Trump Administration has requested a new "low yield" nuclear weapon which would lower the threshold for nuclear war.
Rep. Adam Smith has introduced the Hold the LYNE Act (H.R. 6840), which would prohibit the research and development, production, and deployment of the Trident D5 low-yield nuclear warhead. Rep. Rick Larsen is a co-sponsor of this bill.
Ask other U.S. representatives to cosponsor this bill to stop this new bomb.
Keep and Protect Our Nuclear Arms Treaties
Donald Trump’s decision to “terminate” the INF Treaty with Russia that helped end the Cold War is dangerous and counterproductive.
National Security Advisor John Bolton, who has led the charge to discard the INF treaty, has also been critical of 2010 New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START), which caps our two countries strategic nuclear arsenals to no more than 1,550 deployed warheads and 700 bombers and missiles.
New START is scheduled to expire in 2021 unless Trump and Putin agree to extend it by five years. The New START Policy Act of 2018 (S. 3169) calls on the President to extend New START as long as Russia remains in compliance.
If we fail to extend New START, an even more dangerous phase in U.S.-Russian relations is just over the horizon.
Reduce the Threat of Nuclear War
Tell your members of Congress to reduce the threat of nuclear war by co-sponsoring the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act, S200/HR 669.
Or, thank your Members of Congress who have co-sponsored this bill: Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep. Denny Heck!
