Urgent: Call Congress Today to Cut Nuclear Weapons Budget!

 In Nuclear Weapons, Peace Action, Pentagon Budget

Today the House of Representatives is considering the Energy and Water Appropriations bill where, surprisingly, much of the United States nuclear weapons programs are funded.  We expect a vote tonight or tomorrow for an amendment to cut millions of dollars to unnecessarily “modernize” the B61 nuclear warhead — the oldest nuclear bomb in the U.S. arsenal.

Call your Representative at (202) 224-3121
(they will connect you to your Rep. with your ZIP code) right now and say:

Please tell Rep. [your rep’s name] to vote for the Quigley amendment to the Energy & Water Appropriations bill to cut funding for the B61 nuclear bomb.

At a time when we should be reducing our nuclear weapon stockpile, the federal government wants to upgrade the B61 nuclear bomb at a cost of over $10 billion.  Fortunately, Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) will offer an amendment to cut funds for the B61 nuclear bomb.

With the vote on the amendment likely to occur within 24 hours,  please call the Capitol switchboard now at (202) 224-3121 and ask your Representative to cut funding for the B61 nuclear bomb.

Votes to cut wasteful spending on unneeded nuclear weapons are a rarity.  Please call now and forward this email to your friends, family and colleagues.


Humbly for Peace,


Kevin Martin
Executive Director
Peace Action

PS: Thanks for taking a brief moment to call your Representative now at (202) 224-3121 and saying, “please vote for the Quigley amendment to the Energy & Water Appropriations bill to cut funding for the B61 nuclear bomb.”  Now, forward this email along to everyone you can.
