President Biden’s latest Pentagon budget proposed MILLIONS for new Sea-Launched Cruise Missiles (SLCMs): nukes already rejected by *four* previous administrations, and that Navy officials themselves think would cause too many problems.
Congress is deciding the budget now, and so far — in no small part because of the enormous grassroots pressure from activists like yourself — we’ve kept these dangerous nukes on the chopping block!
But we need to go further. The committee chair is the ONE who determines which bills go to a vote, and whether they are prioritized. That means it’s time to remind Appropriations Chairman Leahy what a disaster this nuke would be — because if we get him fully on board, we can stop SLCMs for good.
Will you send a quick message to Chairman Leahy asking him to cut this dangerous and unnecessary new nuclear weapon from the Pentagon budget?
