Nuclear Weapons: Ask the Candidates

Nuclear Weapons: Ask the Candidates

The world will not be safe from nuclear weapons until there are no nuclear weapons left. U.S. military leaders believe the stockpiles could be cut even further than those negotiated with Russia in 2010 without endangering national security. Ask your candidates for their perspective.

Talk to Iran

Negotiations continue over Iran's nuclear program. As the next round of talks begins, Congress must give diplomats space and flexibility—instead of imposing new sanctions. Diplomacy is the best way to prevent Iran from getting the nuclear bomb.

FCNL Statement of Legislative Policy

"We urge the elimination of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.

We call for our federal government to safely dispose of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and materials in the United States and abroad."
