Oppose fast-track legislation that opens the door wider for trade deals that would invalidate many health-protective laws and regulations.
Oregon PSR applauds the Senate's decision, after months of debate and hundreds of hours of testimony, to ratify the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty in a final 71-26 vote today. Under New START, the United States and Russia will be limited to significantly fewer strategic arms within 7 years from the date the treaty enters into force.
With the support of our members, Oregon PSR has both raised public awareness and built political support for this modest yet urgent step towards a nuclear-free future. Oregon PSR members sent emails, postcards and letters, and made numerous calls, to our elected representatives encouraging them to support and take leadership on nuclear abolition issues, with impressive results. We sincerely appreciate all of your efforts, and will continue to engage your support around this important work.
