"[Arms Control Today] has become indispensable! I think it is the combination of the critical period we are in and the quality of the product. I found myself reading the May issue from cover to cover."

Former Utah Senator Jake Garn Calls for CTBT Ratification

Arms Control NOW


In today's Deseret News, former Senator from Utah Jake Garn cites the changing nature of 21st century security threats and a growing bipartisan consensus in his call for U.S. ratification of the CTBT. He points out that many political and technical realities have changed since the Senate declined to approve the treaty in 1999, including significantly enhanced treaty verification and advances in stockpile stewardship programs that help to maintain the U.S. nuclear arsenal. He writes, "Today, we stand to gain more than any other nation from a global, verifiable ban on all nuclear weapons testing."
