Reid: Time To Move Forward On Treaty To Keep Nuclear Weapons Out Of The Hands Of Terrorists

Washington, DCNevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today after filing cloture on the New START Treaty:
“After months of consideration and five days of open and robust debate, it is time to move forward on a treaty that will help reverse nuclear proliferation and make it harder for terrorists to get their hands on a nuclear weapon.  Every day we delay is another day we do not have inspectors on the ground in Russia monitoring their nuclear arsenal.

“As we move ahead, I look forward to continuing to debate amendments. But soon this will come down to a simple choice: you either want to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorists, or you don’t.”
