In 2011 we will push the Obama administration and Congress to shift priorities in the nuclear weapons budget, including:

  1. Cutting funding for expensive, unnecessary nuclear bomb production plants.
  2. Preserving and increasing spending to dismantle warheads and secure nuclear material around the world.

Additional talking points about the controversial “mixed oxide” (MOX) program, versus programs that secure nuclear material:

  • Suspend construction on the MOX plutonium fuel fabrication plant and its risky weapons plutonium processing activities.
  • The weapons plutonium processing activities of the mixed-oxide (MOX) plutonium fuel fabrication plant, however, do nothing to reduce security threats and, in fact, could well pose a grave risk to nonproliferation. Suspending construction on this plant would save hundreds of millions of dollars that could preserve full funding for the crucial GTRI and Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction programs.
