ONE PROBLEM THO....HOBSON NEVER ADJUSTS HIS VOTES FOR HIS CONSTITUANTS' WISHES!!!
Your Ohio congressional delegation can help stop the administration’s plan to develop new nuclear weapons and return U.S. nuclear weapons production capacity to Cold War levels. Your representative, Rep. David Hobson, sits on an important House committee that will decide whether this proposal goes forward.

At the same time that the administration is condemning nuclear programs in Iran and North Korea, it is proposing its own plan that could re-ignite a dangerous nuclear arms race by rebuilding the U.S.’s own nuclear weapons arsenal. As a first step in this plan, called “Complex 2030” for the date the plan would be completed, the administration has proposed building a new, multi-billion dollar bomb plant.

The plant would produce a new nuclear weapon called the “Reliable Replacement Warhead” (RRW), the first new warhead to be developed by the U.S. in over two decades. Instead of working to reduce its stockpile of nuclear bombs, as the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty calls for, the U.S. is developing new nuclear weapons at the cost of billions of taxpayer dollars.


Take Action

You can help stop the new bomb plant. Blocking this new bomb plant is the first step in blocking the larger plan of reviving the U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal.

Contact your representative and senators today. Use FCNL’s website to write a short letter opposing the proposal to develop new nuclear weapons and build a nuclear bomb plant.


Other Actions You Can Take

Follow up on your email: Send your members of Congress empty soup cans wrapped in FCNL’s “Can the New Bomb Plant” label and a message that you want to see the proposed new nuclear bomb plant stopped. Download the can label and instructions from FCNL’s website. Give copies of the can label to your friends and community and send your members of Congress a stack of cans they won’t forget!

Contact the media: Write a letter to your local paper about this proposal, mentioning your members of Congress by name. Start a discussion in your community about the dangers of a new nuclear arms race.
