Subject: Nuclear Weapons Abolition and Economic and Energy Conversion Act
As a constituent, I urge you to co-sponsor HR-1976, “The Nuclear Weapons Abolition and Economic and Energy Conversion Act” of 2015.
The bill is based in part on the promises much of the world thought President Obama was making in his Prague speech in April 2009, to help lead the world step-by-step towards complete elimination of nuclear weapons. (Regrettably, in the years since Prague, the US has moved to spend one trillion dollars over the next 30 years for new nuclear bomb factories, delivery systems and warheads.) In addition the bill provides funding for environmental restoration and to transform our war industries to producing carbon-free, nuclear-free energy.
